Cousins made 21 appearances in all competitions this past season but has now been shown the door.

Stoke signed him on a free transfer in 2019 and he played 24 times in his first season at the Bet365 Stadium.

Cousins started his career at Charlton Athletic and rose up through the youth ranks of the London club. He made his first-team debut in August 2013 and went on to break into their senior side as a youngster.

The ex-England youth international made 136 appearances for the Addicks before switching to fellow London side QPR in 2016.
