On January 8th 2015, Stoke City completed a loan deal for German defender Philipp Wollschied from Bayer Leverkusen.

The 25-year-old German international went straight into the first team making his debut in a 3-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates.

A week later he played in a partnership with Geoff Cameron, keeping a clean sheet, as Stoke won 1-0 and he earned lots of praise for his resolute performance.

In the summer, Stoke confirmed that a permanent deal had been agreed for a fee of approximately £2.75 million.
