Premier League club Stoke City have completed the signing of Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez on a season long loan without an option to buy.
The former Real Madrid man becomes the sixth signing of the summer for Mark Hughes’ side, joining Darren Fletcher, Kurt Zouma, Eric Maxim Choupa-Moting, Bruno Martins Indi and Josh Tymon in joining the Potters.
Stoke’s chief executive Tony Scholes told the club’s official website: “Jesé was a man in demand when PSG made it clear they would allow him to leave on loan and we are delighted that 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.”
The Champions League winner joined PSG last season for £21m from the Madrid giants and much was expected from the promising young winger, but after only making one appearance for the Parisian club, Jesé was sent out on loan in January to La Liga club Las Palmas.
