Stephen Ireland, the midfielder was capped by the Republic of Ireland 6 times. He is indeed one of the future’s best stars as he made more than 100 appearances for Manchester City. Ireland has had his share of struggles to obtain a place in the 1st team but was used in a deal with Aston Villa. James Milner was successful in heading the other way. Post his struggle for 1st team position, Ireland was with Newcastle United temporarily and then the movement to Stoke City did become permanent. Ireland was there close to 4 years and was let go in this summer.
There is no doubt that Ireland will show his potential and make the new club prouder. The Bolton Wanderers’ decision to close in on Stephen Ireland will certainly yield them best outcomes. Ireland has always been a promising player and will continue to do so in his upcoming tournaments.
