Stoke return for Zakuani

31 August 2007 04:49
Fulham defender Gabriel Zakuani has rejoined Stoke City on loan for the remainder of the season. The 21-year centre-half made nine appearances while on loan at the Britannia Stadium last season and has re-signed for the Potters after failing to break into the first team at the Premier League club. Zakuani joined the Cottagers from Leyton Orient last summer. "We really liked the kid when we had him here last season and we've moved in again after seeing he is nowhere near Fulham's first team," City boss Tony Pulis told the club's official website. "He can play anywhere across the back four and so he should be a good addition for us. "The supporters seemed to like him last season and appreciate his whole-hearted, enthusiastic approach."
