Stoke City have made Gianelli Imbula their record signing from Porto with the holding midfielder signing for the Potters for a reported £18.3 million.
The Potters definitely needed something more in the holding midfield spot than utility player Geoff Cameron. Their depth at the position was exposed when Cameron was injured recently and Marco Van Ginkel has failed to provide much of an answer on loan from Chelsea. That loan was canceled and the Potters added a new record signing. Imbula has potential but he only managed a handful of starts for Porto after signing this summer for £14 million so there is risk that he's not quite ready for prime time. If ever there was an advertisement for the transfer inflation that the new Premier League TV rights deal has caused, this is it. Mon, Feb 1, 2016 06:23:00 PM
