Stoke City football chief John Rudge hopes Diego Arismendi comes good this season.

The 23-year-old midfielder, who has a year left on his Stoke contract, appears to have one last chance to convince manager Tony Pulis after returning to the Britannia Stadium from a season-long loan with Barnsley.

"Hopefully the time at Barnsley will have helped get him into the rigours of the English game," Rudge told The Sentinel.

"I think Tony will have a look at him during pre-season to see if he can step up.

"I'm sure Diego himself will be champing at the bit to prove he can be a part of things here."
