Stoke City to sign Philip Wollscheid on loan until the end of the season

According to BBC Sport, Stoke City are close to completing the signing of Bayer Leverkusen defender Philip Wollscheid on loan until the summer.

The 25-year-old has been on loan to German league side Mainz, while having represented German at senior level on two occasions in the past. He’s highly-regarded in some circles, and Stoke City manager Mark Hughes believes the Potters have found a real gem in Philip Wollscheid.

“He has superb quality and is a very good footballer. He has moved for decent money in the past and he has played for the reigning world champions, so he has real good pedigree,” said the 51-year-old.

He not only brings international experience but also Champions League experience, playing four games in the competition last season with Leverkusen.
