Southampton fans jealous as Stoke close on Jese Rodriguez signing

According to reports in The Telegraph, Stoke City are set to confirm the surprise signing of Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez on Tuesday.

The Telegraph says that the 24-year-old completed a medical on Monday and will move to the Britannia Stadium on a season-long loan deal in what is a huge coup for Potters boss Mark Hughes.

The report adds that the former Real Madrid attacker has turned down interest from the likes of Serie A side Fiorentina to move to the Premier League.

Meanwhile, a separate report in The Telegraph says that Southampton are still looking to add a wide forward to their scored before the window slams shut at the end of the month, and they may look to accelerate that move after failing to find the net again on Saturday.

Southampton supporters were quick to have their say on Jese closing in on a move to Stoke via social media, and they were largely jealous about the potential deal.
