53 games for Stoke City: How is Wilson Palacios getting on these days?

Wilson Palacios made 53 appearances for Stoke City throughout his four-year spell at the club and has played for three different clubs since leaving the Bet365 Stadium.

Palacios joined Stoke from Tottenham Hotspur on transfer deadline day back in August 2011 for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £6million.

The midfielder – who was capped 97 times by Honduras – was signed by Tony Pulis and arrived at the club on the same day as his Spurs teammate Peter Crouch, signing a four-year contract.

Palacios made his debut for Stoke in a 1-0 win over Liverpool in September 2011, but he couldn’t make his first league start for the club until December due to a knee injury.

He went on to make 28 appearances in all competitions during his first season with Stoke, but his fitness and a long-standing knee injury prevented him from making the impact he would have hoped when he arrived at the club.

Palacios struggled to get into the team in the 2012/13 season; he made just four Premier League appearances for Stoke, with all of them coming from the substitutes’ bench.

The midfielder enjoyed more game time under Mark Hughes in the 2013/14 season, making 21 appearances in all competitions. He featured 16 times in the Premier League, as Stoke finished ninth in the top flight.

Palacios didn’t feature for Stoke at all the following season and left the club at the end of his contract in the summer of 2015. He made 53 appearances for the Potters and only started 14 games in the league, as his time at the club was blighted by injury problems.

After leaving Stoke, Palacios had a trail at Hull City, although he did not sign for the club. He eventually joined newly-formed North American Soccer League club Miami FC, but he was released by the club in 2016.
