Stoke fans give mixed reaction to Paddy McNair bid

As reported by MailOnline, Stoke City have matched Middlesborough’s £5m bid for Sunderland utility player Paddy McNair.

Newly-appointed Stoke manager Gary Rowett has set about revamping the Potters side, securing the signing of Benik Afobe from Wolves as well as Peter Etebo from Portuguese side Feirense.

Stoke fans have been impressed with the speed in which Rowett is overhauling his playing squad, the latest addition set to be Northern Ireland international Paddy McNair.

McNair was a bright spark in a season which saw Sunderland relegated to League One, scoring four goals in the last five games of the season, and emerged from a campaign to forget with his reputation largely unscathed.

McNair can play in both defence and midfield, and would represent an astute signing. But many Stoke fans are not convinced by the player, yet others seem to be cautiously optimistic about the player.
