John Obi Mikel Set To Join English Championship Side Stoke City


Former Chelsea midfielder, John Obi Mikel, is set to join Stoke City after reportedly agreeing on a one-year deal with the Championship club.

The 33-year-old former Nigerian Super Eagles captain became a free agent after leaving Turkish side Trabzonspor by mutual consent back in March amid concerns over the Coronavirus pandemic.


Mikel is expected to have his medical next week and will sign a one-year deal with the Potters. 


The midfielder, who made 249 Premier League appearances for Chelsea in an 11-year spell, won two Premier League titles, three FA Cups, one Champions League, and Europa League. 

He also had a two-year spell at Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda, before joining Championship club Middlesbrough for a brief stint.
