PSG’s Rodriguez joins Stoke on loan

Jese Rodriguez

Stoke City have announced the arrival of Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez on a one-season loan.

The former Real Madrid prodigy left Spain to try his luck in Ligue 1 last season, but struggled in Paris and spent the second half of the campaign back in La Liga on loan to Las Palmas.

“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,” said Potters chief executive Tony Scholes.

“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.”
