Ex-Super Eagles Captain Mikel Obi To End Career At Stoke City

If reports are anything to go by, Sky Bet Championship club Stoke City are set to sign former Super Eagles skipper John Mikel Obi.

The 33-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Turkish Super Lig club Trabzonspor in March.

Stoke City Sentinel claim club manager Michael O’Neil is keen on bringing in a holding midfielder and the ex-Nigerian International could be a leading contender.

West Bromich Albion, who will play in the Premier League next season following their promotion from the Championship- have also been credited with an interest in the midfielder.

The former Super Eagles captain was recently linked with a move to Brazilian clubs Botafogo and Internacional.

A vastly experienced player with more than 350 appearances for Chelsea, he won multiple titles during his time with the Blues.

The Nigerian had a spell in China, before returning to sign for Middlesbrough in a short-term deal in 2019.
