Full Contact client Joel Taylor, 18, has today signed his first professional contract with Stoke City.
Joel has recently completed his two year scholarship with the Premier League club and has featured regularly for Stoke’s Under 18 and Under 21 sides – playing either left back or in a more advanced left sided role.
Joel has put pen to paper and signed an one year professional contract, and will now look to firmly establish himself at Under 21 level and move closer towards first team action.
Lee Payne, head of Full Contact’s Football Agency team, said “Joel has shown throughout the last year that he has a lot of ability and potential, and to win his first professional contract is of course a great achievement. Next year is now a big one for him; Joel has to make the transition and step up to the next level, which we believe he can do with a lot of hard work.”
