Pearson makes permanent Potters move


AFC Bournemouth AFC Bournemouth

Midfielder Ben Pearson has completed a permanent move to Sky Bet Championship side Stoke City.

The 28-year-old departs the Cherries having made 55 appearances in all competitions since arriving at Vitality Stadium in January 2021.

Pearson helped the club win promotion to the Premier League in 2021/22 and made his top flight debut in the 2-0 win over Aston Villa in August 2022.

He joins Stoke following a successful loan spell at bet365 Stadium last season, playing 14 times.

We’d like to thank Ben for his efforts at Vitality Stadium and wish him well for the future.
