STOKE CITY produced a massive sign of intent when they confirmed the signing of Spanish playmaker Bojan in 2014.
The Spaniard holds a glamorous CV having played for Barcelona, Roma, AC Milan and Ajax prior to his move to the bet365 Stadium.
It is at Camp Nou where he made a name for himself, scoring 41 goals in 163 appearances which in turn helped the Catalan giants’ secure 10 pieces of silverware in what was arguably one of the club’s most memorable and recognised periods in its 117 year history.
Bojan completed four seasons within the first team at Barcelona, after progressing through the club’s famous La Masia Academy from the age of 8, lifting three La Liga titles, a Cope del Ray accolade as well as two coveted Champions League trophies and a FIFA Club World Cup medal.
A spell with Italian side Roma followed before he was loaned out to AC Milan during the 2012/13 season. After two years in Serie A, Bojan returned to Barcelona after they triggered a clause in his Roma contract to buy him back, immediately sending him out on loan to Dutch side Ajax.
He played 32 times in Holland, scoring five goals, helping Ajax lift the Eredivisie title as well as the Johan Cryuff Shield during the 2013/14 campaign.
With uncertainty looming over his time at Barcelona, Bojan signed a four-year contract with the Potters and became an immediate fans favourite due to his creativity, flair and game changing mentality.
The Spanish international was enjoying a debut season in North Staffordshire but saw his campaign abruptly ended by a long-term knee ligament injury in an FA Cup game at Rochdale in 2015. He returned the following season to good effect, but with a number of players fighting for a first team spot he struggled for a place in the starting line-up.
He spent the second half of last season on loan at Bundesliga side FC Mainz, playing an influential role in helping the side maintain their top flight status in Germany, before spending the 2017/18 season with Alaves.
Bojan returned to the bet365 Stadium in the summer of 2018, netting his first Potters goal since 2016, in an away draw against Rotherham United.
