Stoke City looking at Coventry City teenage defender Obviously Stoke can pay far more than us considering we're four leagues apart but can't remember a single player coming through their system in last 10-15 years (maybe even longer). Surely signing his deal with the club he's been at since 8, a club who he's already played in the first team for and a club who has a track record of bringing players through makes more sense even if CCFC can't offer as much as Stoke? This was always going to be a problem though. CCFC have 4-5 U18s constantly playing U23s football and impressing. These Premier League clubs can take a gamble on these players with 'potential' for what is considered to them a small amount of money.
