Stoke City set to announces key player departure before Thursday’s 11pm deadline

D’Margio Wright-Phillips, a Stoke City winger, is reportedly likely to leave the club for Belgian side Beerschot before the transfer window shuts.
D’Margio Wright-Phillips, a Stoke City forward, is reportedly due to quit the club today to join Belgian side Beerschot.
The 22-year-old joined the Potters from Manchester City two years ago and broke into the first team, but he spent the second half of last season on loan after falling out of favour at the Bet365 Stadium.

Stoke are now in 19th place in the Championship, thus the winger will be moving down to Belgium’s second level.

The departure could free up some wages for the team to buy a player before the transfer window closes later today, bolstering their fight against relegation to League One.

However, some strong performances in Europe might reignite interest in the child and launch his career back in England or somewhere around the world.

Wright-Phillips ready to quit Stoke for Belgium
Wright-Phillips appears to be on his way out of Stoke, with reports linking him with a move away from the club before the end of the transfer window.

The Stoke Sentinel stated that the winger is on the move on deadline day, joining former Stoke player Thibaud Verlinden at Beerschot in the Challenger Pro League in Belgium.

The club is managed by former Liverpool forward Dirk Kuyt, so may be a good place for Wright-Phillips to develop the attacking side of his game.
With Beerchot currently chasing promotion from the second tier of the Belgian league, the move could be considered a step down for Wright-Phillips in the early years of his career.
Despite coming to the club with huge potential ability and big expectations, Wright-Phillips has failed to kick on and establish himself as a key player for the Potters.

The Englishman joined the club in 2021, signing up with the Stoke youth team after leaving Manchester City. He was seen as a promising youngster at City, although the expectation of being the son of Shaun Wright-Phillips, as well as the grandson of Ian Wright meant that big things were expected of the youngster.

His move to Stoke got him out of the spotlight, but his performances did not impress the club’s managers sufficiently. Despite getting into the team, Wright-Phillips only appeared in 17 games for the Potters, scoring twice and failing to assist in over 500 minutes of play time.
After battling for playing time, he moved out on loan to Northampton Town for the second half of last season, but was mostly limited to the bench. He appeared in only seven games with the Cobblers, scoring no goals or assisting any teammates.

A move abroad could be the best option for the forward. He has so far failed to impress in England, despite the great expectations placed on him as a young youngster.

At 22 years old, a move to a foreign nation and away from the spotlight would allow him to focus exclusively on his game while developing under a manager who understands how to succeed as a forward in the Premier League.
