He has been around for so long that you could mistake him for someone way older, but he is only 24, and Stoke City represent a great opportunity for him to make the breakthrough he didn’t have at Paris Saint-Germain.
The Premier League club announced an one-year loan agreement with PSG for Jese Rodriguez, ex-Real Madrid, a product of the Merengues academy, who left the club as a Champions League titleholder in 2016, hoping to get more game time at PSG.
It didn’t happen, he ended up on loan at Las Palmas last December, and now it’s Premier League for him, a challenge to show he has what it takes to succeed there.
Jese was a man in demand when PSG made it clear they would allow him to leave on loan and we’re delighted he has chosen to join us. He hasn’t had the happiest of periods in his career in Paris but he’s still only a young man and is hungry to make a big impression in the Premier League
Stoke City’s chief executive Tony Scholes told the club’s official website.
His pedigree speaks for itself and he will most certainly add to the firepower at our disposal
Scholes added. It remains to be seen how long it will take the 24-year-old to adopt to life (and style of play) in the Premier League.
