James Joseph McClean (born 22 April 1989) is an Irish professional footballer who plays as a winger for Premier League club Stoke City and the Republic of Ireland national team.

He played with Trojans, Institute, his hometown club Derry City, and Sunderland before moving to Wigan Athletic in August 2013. He spent two seasons at Wigan, claiming their player of the year award in the latter, and then returned to the Premier League by joining West Bromwich Albion in June 2015.

McClean was born and brought up in Derry, Northern Ireland and played for the Northern Ireland national under-21 football team, but declined a call-up to the senior squad because he wanted to play for the Republic of Ireland. In February 2012, McClean received international clearance from FIFA which made him eligible to play for the Republic of Ireland, making his debut against the Czech Republic in the same month. He represented the nation at UEFA Euro 2012 and UEFA Euro 2016.
