POTTERS PLUCK ROSE ON TWO YEAR DEAL

Stoke City have completed the signing of central defender Michael Rose on a two-year contract.


The 27-year-old, who featured on 26 occasions as Coventry City reached the play-offs in 22/23, has remained on the radar of the Potters since their initial interest during the transfer window in January.


Rose has made a total of 232 senior appearances during his career to date having emerged through the youth system at Aberdeen and spent four years with Ayr United prior to moving to the Midlands in 2019.


He won promotion to the Championship in his debut campaign with the Sky Blues and passed a century of appearances for Mark Robins’ side last season.


“We identified Michael as a target because we believe the way he approaches the game is perfectly suited to the style of football we want to play,” said Technical Director Ricky Martin.


“He arrives at a point in his career where there’s plenty of experience there, but also with his best years ahead of him as a central defender.


“Due to his qualities and experience of the level, Michael had interest from several clubs and we are delighted that he’s chosen Stoke City as the place where he feels he can continue his development.


“He has a clear desire to succeed and to continue the upwards trajectory of his career. We wish him every success for his time with the Club.”


The defender added that the Potters making him feel truly wanted was a key factor in his decision to make the move.


“The fact that the manager has maintained an interest over a longer period shows that he believes in me, and that makes it an attractive opportunity,” Rose explained.
