‘Signing of the window’ – Many Stoke City fans buzz after striking Aston Villa transfer agreement
Football League World
Stoke City have swooped to sign Jaden Philogene-Bidace on loan from Aston Villa.
Michael O’Neill has already secured the service of Lewis Baker, Phil Jagielka and Taylor Harwood-Bellis this month, with Philogene-Bidace the latest impressive coup for the Potters.
It’s been confirmed that the 19-year-old will link up with Stoke for the remainder of the season, with Villa trusting the Potters with the development of a young talent.
Philogene-Bidace has already made his Premier League debut, featuring against Tottenham last season and Newcastle earlier in the 2021/22 campaign.
It’s been in the Villa youth teams where Philogene-Bidace has done the most damage, though, scoring in the EFL Trophy twice against Wycombe Wanderers, as well as six times in four games in the Premier League 2 Division 2.
