A number of Stoke City supporters have been reacting to the latest confirmation from the Potters that they have secured the signing of defender Ben Wilmot from Watford.

The Potters have moved swiftly to announce a replacement for defender Nathan Collins whose departure to Premier League Burnley was also confirmed on Thursday afternoon.

The defender was a strong performer for Watford in the Championship last season and he played an important role in helping them secure promotion back to the Premier League. In total, he managed to make 25 league appearances and helped the Hornets record six clean sheets.

That comes a year on from another promising loan spell with Swansea City in the Championship, where he managed to make 21 appearances in the league to help the Swans reach the play-offs in the 2019/20 campaign.
