The left-back, who joined Stoke from Manchester City U18s in January 2019, has featured 14 times in the Premier League 2 for Stoke this season, scoring once.
Following the draw with West Ham, Corrigan gave an assessment of the game on Twitter, in which he stated: “Disappointing to not take all three points tonight, but as usual, all the lads showed what we are about and came out with a point in the end. Also great to score my first goal for the club.”
In response, Stoke City fans took to social media, praising his performances so far for the club, with some suggesting he should be challenging for a first-team place.

What do we think?
Stoke City’s 53 goals conceded is the third-worst record in the league, and with Stephen Ward one of few viable options at left-back currently for Stoke, it could be time for Michael O’Neill to inject some youth into the Potters’ back-line.
