Stoke are closing in on the signing of Spurs midfielder Wilson Palacios, according to reports from a football agent on Twitter.
'Football_Agent9` announced on his Twitter site, which has over 13,000 followers:
"Palacios has agreed personal terms with Stoke City. Announcement tomorrow/Tuesday for sure".
Vital Stoke would like to stress these are completely unconfirmed reports at the moment, but if they are credible, the Honduran will apparently join Stoke for an initial fee of £6 million, potentially rising to £10 million depending on the Potters' performance in Europe.
The 27-year-old joined Tottenham from Wigan Athletic for £12 million in 2009, but has recently found first-team opportunities limited at White Hart Lane with Sandro, Tom Huddlestone and Jermaine Jenas all being preferred in the enforcer`s role.
He would be a massive signing and a big statement of intent for Stoke as Pulis looks to build on the success of last year by targeting players of undoubted class.
Built like an Ox and technically gifted, Palacios seems the perfect fit for a Stoke side who beyond their obvious physical attributes, are evolving into a team with genuine footballing quality.
Exciting times! It promises to be a very interesting month...
