Mikel Obi Returns To England, Pens One Year Deal With Stoke FC


LONDON - Stoke City have confirmed the signing of former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel on a short-term deal.


The Nigeria star joined the Potters on a free transfer on Monday after leaving Turkish Super Lig club Trabzonspor during the coronavirus crisis in March.


Mikel is set for his second adventure in the Championship with Stoke City, having previously played for Middlesbrough in the second half of the 2018-19 season.


He is Stoke City’s fourth-summer signing ahead of the new season after Morgan Fox, James Chester and Steven Fletcher.


Following the completion of Mikel’s move, manager O’Neill disclosed the duration of his conversation with the 33-year-old and his ambition to end his career in the Premier League.


“We’re delighted to bring John to the club. His playing career speaks for itself and underlines his calibre as a player,” O’Neill said.


“I was really impressed with him when we met for the first time and he outlined what he wants from the next phase of his career.
