Erik Pieters joined the Potters from 21-time Eredivisie winners PSV Eindhoven for £3 million in the summer of 2013.
Pieters made his debut in a one-nil defeat at Anfield against Liverpool on August 17 2013 and his only goal came that season when a cross disguised as a shot, found it’s way into the Newcastle goal, which gave Stoke all three points.
Following his move to the Potteries, Pieters is hoping of being a solid feature for the Dutch national side, but that is yet to happen. To this day he has made 17 appearances for the Netherlands.
