Stoke to win Laurent race a Cardiff City target

Postby Pantmawr Bluebird » Thu Jun 16, 2022 2:39 pm

A player that I was hoping would come here!
May not have been a target at all but there were a few rumours not long ago




Stoke City are closing the net on Reading midfielder Josh Laurent, StokeonTrentLive understands.

The 27-year-old has been one of the Championship's most-wanted free agents this summer, with Reading also keen to keep him. Cardiff are one of the clubs who have been publicly linked.

Laurent is now a free agent and looks likely to turn down a new offer by Reading who he appeared for in 41 games last season and being one of the stand out players of the season for Reading.

Steve Morison at Cardiff City made Laurent one of his main targets but wages were the sticking point and it now looks like Stoke City will win the race to sign him.

Ex Cardiff City star player Aden Flint joined Stoke City this week.

Is this really over?

Later reports have suggested that it will be finalised in the next few days or possibly next week.

Could sound like he is weighing up all his offers still.

Spot on, we're not going to be successful with every target. No club is, even the top Premier League clubs.

All of this.....unfortunately not every poster understands the reality of life and football and transfer dealings etc. :bluebird:
Not a shred of evidence exists in favour of the idea that life is serious........

Surprised this still hasn't been announced by Stoke City.

Obviously someone has given him a lot to think about.

It would seem something is stopping his decision!

Like all of us I don't want players to come in that don't want to be here.

On the other hand though if Laurent and Wallace could wait a little while longer to see if GB comes in that would be great :lol:

Yeah just saw that. So much for the faintest of hopes.

The next hope is that he turned us down as he didn't want to play second fiddle to Ramsey :lol:
