‘This would be some signing’ – Stoke City edge closer to sealing deal: The verdict



Stoke City are closing in on a one-year loan deal for Everton defender Cuco Martina.

According to Football Insider 24/7, the Potters are close to agreeing a season-long loan deal to bring the 28-year-old full back to the Bet365 Stadium.

Would this be a good signing for Gary Rowett’s side?

Here is how we view the potential deal….

George Dagless

I’m undecided.

He brings pace and energy and has decent offering going forwards but as a right-back he cannot really defend very well.

He might look stronger in the Championship but I still think he needs to tighten up if Stoke are to be impressed by him.

Sam Rourke

This just makes Stoke even stronger.

Their backline is littered with experienced Premier League players and Martina will add an element of dynamism and pace to the defence.

It’ll be a great signing for the season.

Gary Hutchinson

He’s got plenty of experience and would add a freshness to the rather tired looking Stoke back line.

There’s clearly not a lot left for him at Everton, but he’s still young enough to have a significant impact in the Championship.

I wonder how many Curacao internationals have graced the Stoke turf before?

There’s certainly a world of difference between the Caribbean island and a wet and windy night at the bet365 Stadium!

Jay Taylor

This would be some signing.

Martina has a keen ability at timing his tackles well and winning the ball back when needed.

Not the best in the air but it is on the ground where Martina is useful, he is strong at holding on to the ball and would add much-needed steel to the Potter’s defence.
