Souttar returns to Fleetwood for another loan spell
Centre-back Harry Souttar has rejoined SkyBet League One Fleetwood on a season-long loan deal from Stoke.
The 20-year-old, who has only made two appearances for the Potters – both in the League Cup – joined Fleetwood on loan in January.
Souttar made 11 appearances, scoring the winner in a 1-0 victory at Accrington in March, although blotted his copybook with a straight red card in a 4-2 defeat at Barnsley in mid-April.
Despite that, Town boss Joey Barton has had no qualms in bringing Souttar back to Highbury as he told the club’s website:’We are really pleased to see Harry back with us for the upcoming season.
‘He became a really important player in our side towards the end of the season but was also a really great member of the group with his infectious personality in the dressing room.
‘We look forward to seeing him kick on this year and develop further into a key member of the team.’
