Stoke City have gone ahead to strengthen their squad in preparation of Championship season with the addition of two Nigerian players Gabriel Adebambo and David Okagbue.
Stoke City Academy Director, Gareth Owen has confirmed, through their official website, that midfielder Gabriel Adebambo , 18, has joined the club from Dundalk in the Republic of Ireland.
“We signed Gabby from Ireland. We agreed the deal at the end of January but with the transfer window closed, we picked it up at the end of the season and stood by it,” said Owen.
David Okagbue completed his Stoke City transfer on a scholarship deal.
“Centre back and a new signing from Ireland. Tall, aggressive defender who is good on the ball also. A good talker and an all-round leader,” Stoke City said on Okagbue.
Adebambo will feature for Stoke City’s U23s this season while Okagbue will start with the U18s.
Recall that FrujuSports had reported that Oghenekaro Etebo left Stoke City for a loan move to Turkish Super Lig side Galatasaray shortly after Mikel Obi joined the Potters on a one-year deal.
