Jul 4, 2017-

Stoke City midfielder Stephen Ireland has signed a six-month contract extension as he continues to recover from a broken leg that cost him the entire 2016-17 campaign, the Premier League club said. Ireland, who joined Stoke from Aston Villa on a permanent basis in January 2014 after a loan stint in 2013, sustained injury last April. Ireland has won six caps for the Republic of Ireland and was named Manchester City’s Player of the Season in 2009.
