Stoke are interested in bringing defender Ashley Williams to the club on a season long loan deal, according to outlets such as the Echo and Sky Sports.
Stoke manager Gary Rowett expressed his desire to reinforce the defence at Stoke, and it seems like Rowett has identified his man.
Williams’ wages are said to be around £65k per week and this provides a stumbling block for Stoke – and negotiations now balance on the percentage of wages that Stoke will pay.
There was talk of a potential swap deal which would see Badou N’Diaye come to the Blues, but reports from the Liverpool Echo suggest that Everton are not interested in the midfielder.
Stoke hope to get the deal done soon so they can start preparing for the start of the Championship season on Saturday.
What do you think Blues? Happy to potentially see the back of Williams? Let us know!
