How Twitter reacted as Stoke City secured the signing of PSG’s Jese Rodriguez

Written by

Stoke City have arguably pulled off one of the finest pieces of transfer business this summer as the club’s official website announced the sensational signing of Jese Rodriguez from Paris Saint-Germain.

The 24-year-old has arrived at the bet365 Stadium on a season-long loan deal, becoming Mark Hughes’ sixth signing of the summer and the second in a week along with Maxim Choupa-Moting.

Speaking about the Rodriguez coup, Stoke Chief Executive Tony Scholes said:

“Jesé was a man in demand when PSG made it clear they would allow him to leave on loan and we’re delighted he has chosen to join us.

“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.”

Rodriguez – who is a two-time Champions League winner as part of the Real Madrid squad – has struggled since his move to Paris and he spent last season on-loan at small La Liga side Las Palmas.
