I must say I didn’t really see this coming from Joe. After a great tournament in France, I was expecting him to be a vital part of Liverpool title challenge this season.
But the story right now is that Stoke City have signed Wales midfielder Joe Allen from Liverpool on a five-year deal.
Liverpool had accepted Stoke’s £13m offer for Allen, who only had one year left on his contract at Anfield.
The 26-year-old was also a target for the Potters’ Premier League rivals Swansea City, whom he left to move to Liverpool in 2012.
