Joselu Heads Out, Jese Comes In

Joselu Heads Out, Jese Comes In

Stoke City have now confirmed the expected departure of Joselu and announced the arrival of former Real Madrid frontman Jese Rodriguez.

Joselu heads to Newcastle United for a £5million fee and having joined us two years ago, the 27 year old did only make ten Premier League starts. He spent last season out on loan with Deportivo so his departure is no great surprise.

Coming into the club is attacker Jese and he makes the move to the Bet365 Stadium on a season long loan.

Formerly of Real Madrid, Rodriguez made the switch to Paris Saint-Germain last summer and the 24 year old is a double Champions League winner.

Chief executive Tony Scholes told the Official Website.

'Jese was a man in demand when PSG made it clear they would allow him to leave on loan and we`re delighted he has chosen to join us. He hasn`t had the happiest of periods in his career in Paris but he`s still only a young man and is hungry to make a big impression in the Premier League. His pedigree speaks for itself and he will most certainly add to the firepower at our disposal.'

Having spent nine years with Real Madrid coming through their youth system, he scored 12 goals in 62 La Liga appearances and was part of their Champions League winning squads in 2014 and 2016.

Following his £22million move to PSG he struggled to make an impact in his first year and spent the second half of the campaign out on loan with Las Palmas.
