Quartet put pen-to-paper...
FOUR Academy players have signed their first professional contracts at Stoke City and committed their futures to the Club.
Defenders Will Forrester, Scott Wara and Max Murphy, as well as attacker Abdoulaye Toure, have all penned pro deals with the Potters.
The quartet, who have shone for the U18s in recent seasons, will now make the step up to join Kevin Russell’s U23s squad.
Meanwhile, three players from the U23s group – Cameron McJannet, Jake Dunwoody and Daniel Jarvis – have all signed contract extensions.
In addition, goalkeeper Blondy Nna Noukeuand and forward Abdul Sankoh have joined the Club and linked up with the U23s.
