I will aim to include the confirmed transfers and rumours – based on reliable as possible sources.
Confirmed INS –
Confirmed OUTS –
Charlie Adam, Darren Fletcher, Jacob Haugaard – all released at the end of their contracts
Ashley Williams – loan ended, out of contract at Everton
Jack Butland to Bournemouth with former keeper Asmir Begovic coming back to Stoke as part of any deal; Butland has also been linked with a move to Crystal Palace
Moritz Bauer – linked with a number of clubs, most likely to be loaned out next season.
Bojan – the Sentinel ran a story saying Bojan was told to look for another club, which led to the club issuing an update on the club’s website stating Bojan would only leave if a suitable offer came in. Whatever way you read it don’t expect him to be in the squad come the first game of the season.
Joe Allen has been linked with a move to Wolves
Eric Pieters has a year left on his contract and will either leave the club on a permanent deal or another loan this summer, as he does not feature in the manager’s plans.
Kevin Wimmer and Imbula will be shipped out if the club can find any takers, whilst Badou Ndiaye is one returning loanee Nathan Jones may give another chance to impress, although the player may want a move away from Stoke regardless.
Nathan Collins the young defender has been linked with a move to Man Utd, which will be a blow if it happens as he looks an exciting prospect.

Nick Powell (Wigan) – former Man Utd player and one Nathan Jones is planning to land on a free as he is currently out of contract at Wigan. (Sentinel)
