Stoke City have confirmed on their official Twitter account that the club and playmaker Bojan have come to an agreement to part ways – and West Bromwich Albion fans have implored their board to sign the Spanish star.
Back in January, Darren Moore was reportedly desperate to bring the former Barcelona star to The Hawthorns and made a bid for the 28-year-old. However, new Stoke boss Nathan Jones opted rejected the offer, as per the Sentinel.
Just six months on, and Bojan has been released by Stoke on a free transfer. It leaves the journeyman attacker available for nothing, with the star set to be looking for a new club as soon as possible.
Stoke City can confirm that @BoKrkic has left the Club by mutual consent.
The Club would like to thank Bojan for his efforts during his five-year spell with the Potters and wish him well for the future.#SCFC 🔴⚪️

The Spaniard has been linked with a move to the MLS, while a return to Spain could also be on the cards. Bojan has now played in five different countries, in England, Spain, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands.
Slaven Bilic is expected to be bringing in a number of players before the window shuts, after an excellent start to life as Baggies manager with a well-earned 2-1 away win at Nottingham Forest.
It remains to be seen if Bilic shares Moore’s desire to sign Bojan, though, with Thursday’s deadline not affecting a move for the free agent. West Brom fans do share Moore’s view on the Spanish attacker, and want him signed.
Bojan? On a free? So talented. Wasted at stoke. #WBA

Definitely, I think he would work really well in our new setup off the bench maybe replacing Krovinovic when he tires later in games
