Thomas James "Tom" Soares (born July 10 1986 in Reading, England) is an English footballer of Barbadian descent who currently plays for Stoke City in the Premier League. He is a midfielder. His brother Louie is also a footballer, playing for Blue Square Premier champions Aldershot Town and the Barbados national side.

He came up through the Crystal Palace academy, playing in central midfield, but since breaking through has been used more often on the wing for Palace, a position he is happy to fill, but is evidently not his favourite, leading to his performances being criticised by some Palace fans.

Soares is acknowledged to be an exciting midfield talent amongst many football managers and pundits and has previously appeared for the England U21 side.

Under Neil Warnock, Soares has been handed his old central midfield role and has flourished in Palace's three-man midfield. His driving runs, combined with his best goalscoring season to date, have meant he has been a key performer in Palace's 2007-08 campaign.

Early in the following season, Soares was transfer listed by Warnock, following Palace's poor start to the season, and went on to complete a deadline day move to Premier League newcomers Stoke City.
