Stoke sign PSG forward on loan

Stoke City have signed Jese Rodriguez on a season-long loan from Paris St-Germain.

The 24-year-old forward joined PSG last August for £21m from Real Madrid, after helping the Spanish giants to Champions League victories in 2014 and 2016.

“His pedigree speaks for itself,” said Stoke 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.

“He will most certainly add to the firepower at our disposal.”
