Stoke City midfielder John Obi Mikel has insisted that he is currently enjoying his stay and football at the club and despite reports suggesting that he could be sealing a move away from the Potters, he has quashed those reports and labeled them just rumors.



The Nigerian midfielder has been a mainstay at the heart of Stoke City’s midfield this season and has shown signs of improvement since he was given the opportunity to feature in consecutive games. After signing for the club last summer, the midfielder encountered some difficulty settling in but he has now found his rhythm and his place in the team is no longer under threat like it was.

His fine performances for Stoke have seen him earn starts and praise from fans online, some of whom have requested that the club hand him a contract extension so he could stay for a longer time than his current contract stipulates.

Mikel has already established himself as a fans’ favorite and he says he is willing to continue to try and work harder so that he is continued to be loved by the fans because they’re an important part of the club.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Mikel said that right from the moment he joined the club, he has been given a warm reception by everyone, including the manager, the staff, and his fellow players. He said the reception has been really warm and welcoming and he feels very happy at the moment.

He also added that he would wish to continue his journey with the club because they’ve given him everything he needs to be happy there and he will continue working hard to ensure that he gives his very best on the pitch in a bid to repay the huge faith the manager has shown in him.
