Former Super Eagles’ captain, John Obi Mikel, has returned to English football.
The 33-year old made this known on his Instagram page.
He has joined the English Championship side, Stoke City, on a free transfer for one year.
The management of the club has also expressed optimism on the ability of Mikel to contribute to their dream of returning to the English top flight.
Recall that Mikel and his former employer, Trabzonspor, parted ways in March on a mutual consent, following the outbreak of Covid19, and has since been a free agent.
