Gary Rowett will be disappointed with his Stoke City side’s performance as 2018 turns to 2019, but there is still time to salvage it.
The Potters drew 2-2 with Aston Villa last weekend at the Be365 Stadium to rise up to 11th place in the Championship table, now just five points behind Middlesbrough who currently occupy the final play-off place.
The most recent name to be linked with a move to the club is West Ham midfielder Marcus Browne, who is currently impressing on loan with Oxford United in League One.
He has so far scored four goals and assisted four more in Karl Robinson’s struggling outfit.
But who would be the big winner and loser if he were to arrive?
