Transfer news: West Brom captain Darren Fletcher to join Stoke City on a free transfer

Darren Fletcher

West Brom captain Darren Fletcher has agreed to join Stoke City.

The midfielder is out of contract at the Hawthorns and has turned down the offer of a new deal to sign for the Baggies’ Premier League rivals.

It is understood Fletcher will pen a two-year contract with Mark Hughes’ side.

The Scotland international joined West Brom on a free transfer in February 2015 after 12 years with Manchester United.

He has started every Premier League match for the club since his arrival – 91 in total – and helped them achieve a tenth-place finish this season.

His loss will come as a big blow to West Brom boss Tony Pulis’ plans for next season.

Pulis recently praised the 33-year-old as a great influence on his teammates, and made it clear he wanted his skipper to stay.
