Whelan wanted & Shaqiri off?

Bar the signing of Darren Fletcher on a free from West Brom, it has been a quiet start to the summer transfer season for Stoke – although the transfer window doesn’t officially open until July 1.

Glen Whelan has had an offer from Aston Villa turned down by the club and now Derby County are interested in signing him. It does look as though come the new season he will be playing for a new club.

Shaqiri is being linked again with a move to Roma – hope he does stay a Stoke player next season. Imbula could be off to Nice on loan as Stoke look to offload our flop record signing. Joselu could be off to Malaga on a permanent move, another Hughes signing who failed to impress.

One former Stoke player we could see at the Bet365 stadium next season is Dean Whitehead, who has been offered a new contract by newly promoted Huddersfield Town, where he has been for the past two seasons.
