Stoke City Hand Trial To 17 Year Old Danish Winger: Should Hughes Go With This Signing?

Stoke City started the season on a positive note but their subsequent form has taken a steep turn for the worse. This might be the make or break season for Mark Hughes who has been with the club for a pretty long time.

The Potters were pretty active in the summer transfer market and made a number of impressive signings which was supposed to define their season but they have failed to do so and Hughes does have a tough task cut out for him.

Stoke have reportedly handed a trial to winger Frederik Pedersen. The 17-year-old has been with the club since Thursday and had the chance to impress when the Potters faced Aston Villa in a friendly match yesterday.

Premier League have been full of young prodigies and the Danish teenager could make his name in the English top tier. He is currently plying his trade for FK Viborg and if an opportunity comes, he is likely to embrace it with both hands.

His father Ralf Pedersen who happens to be the assistant manager at Viborg expressed his satisfaction over this positive move. “It’s a fascinating experience he gets. He comes over and tries to see how it is in a really big club.

‘My wife and I have talked to Frederik that he should take it as an experience. He comes over and sees a big and fat club.

‘But they bring a lot of players into trial training. So that is not because we are now suddenly starting to make plans.”

If the player does sign for the club, he is unlikely to get an imminent taste of the Premier League as he will be inducted into the Potters academy first.

The winger is suited to play on the right side but can also operate from the opposite flank and if needed he can be a number 10. Blessed with good technique and blistering speed he could be a future asset for the Potters.

Stoke are currently placed 14th in the Premier League table and Hughes would be hoping they maintain their form. They played out a convincing  2-2 draw with Leicester City in the last match and will entertain Brighton & Hove Albion when Premier League resumes after the international break ends.

It remains to be seen whether the teenager has the quality to flourish in the English top tier or not.
