Was just browsing the Stoke FC forum. Stumbled across this:
Name: Dean Whitehead
Date of Birth: 21/01/1982
Height: 6' 0" (183cm)
Weight: 12st 1lbs (76.73kg)
Clubs: Sunderland, Oxford United
The former Sunderland skipper's dogged and industrious playing style certainly won over the City supporters during his maiden campaign at the Britannia Stadium, following his £5,000,000 move from Wearside in July last year.
The Abingdon born midfielder, who already boasted over 200 top flight appearances, established himself as a vital member of the City squad throughout the campaign as he featured in all but two of the Potters Premier League encounters.
Equally as adept on the right hand side of midfield as he is in the middle, Dean has also filled in at right back making him an invaluable member of Tony Pulis' squad.
A player with a bit of a reputation for grabbing the odd goal, Dean will have been disappointed to have only hit the back of the net once last season, and will be looking to add to his tally throughout the 2010/11 campaign.
If £5million is true surely this is the best bit of business we have ever done?
