Stoke City are facing a nervous period with regards to the long-term future of Josh Tymon as other clubs start to show interest in the 22-year-old amid his contract situation, according to The Sun on Sunday (03/10/21, p60).
Tymon has been a crucial member of Michael O’Neill’s side so far this season in the Championship with him starting in all 11 of their opening matches in the league.
The 22-year-old has been in impressive form for the Potters and he has been able to create six big chances, average 1.6 key passes per game and also complete one successful dribble per match.
However, the left-wing-back’s current deal is set to expire at the end of the season. That means that the Potters are in danger of losing Tymon for nothing next summer if they can not reach an agreement with him over fresh terms.
According to the latest report from The Sun on Sunday (03/10/21, p60), the Potters are now sweating over the long-term future of Tymon following his bright start to the Championship season under O’Neill.
Are these 22 Stoke City stats real or fake?
It is believed that other clubs are starting to register an interest in Tymon at this stage with them aware that his contract is running down at the Bet365 Stadium.
Losing Tymon on the cheap or even on a free transfer would be a major blow for the Potters. That is because the 22-year-old has been in exceptional form for them so far this season and is beginning to mature as a key player for them.
O’Neill has been patient with Tymon and given him room to develop his game before bringing him into the side on a consistent basis.
The defender’s form so far this season has shown that approach has worked perfectly to get the very best out of him.
Given Tymon’s potential and the form he has been showing so far this term. It is little surprise to see that other sides are now interested in taking advantage of his contractual situation and potentially securing a bargain move for him.
Stoke are going to have to do everything that they can to try and keep hold of Tymon because he is the sort of player that they should be aiming to build around for the long-term.
