Name emerges as Stoke City look to address problem position with transfer



Stoke City have Andy Lonergan under consideration as they look to solve their goalkeeping issues. 

Angus Gunn has picked up an ankle injury, whilst Adam Davies is out of action with a knee injury. That left Michael O’Neill having to field Josef Bursik in Saturday’s win over Huddersfield Town.

As per Alan Nixon, the Potters are now stepping up their pursuit of a free-agent goalkeeper to fill the void.

It’s a senior goalkeeper that Stoke want, with Lonergan under consideration.

The former Leeds and Wolves goalkeeper is a free agent, with his most recent spell at a club coming with Liverpool, where he served as the Reds’ third choice.

Bursik stepped in against Huddersfield and helped Stoke to an impressive win over Carlos Corberan’s side.

The Potters were 4-3 winners in a hugely entertaining fixture, with Bursik making a number of good saves to keep Huddersfield at bay.

There’s no rest for Stoke in wake of that fixture, though, with O’Neill’s side back in action on Tuesday evening and taking on high-flying Norwich City at the bet365 Stadium.

20 quiz questions about Stoke City’s current squad that Potters fans should be getting correct

1 of 20

Who has scored the most goals for the Potters in the league so far this season?

The Verdict

This probably wouldn’t be a bad option for Stoke in the short-term.

O’Neill needs to do something to compensate losing Gunn and Davies heading into a crucial run of fixtures and Lonergan is very experienced.

He might not be an upgrade, but he’s support for Bursik, which is important.
