Pulis lines up winger swap
Stoke are ready to offer Danny Higginbotham to Wolves in the hope it may persuade them to cash in on Michael Kightly.
Potters boss Tony Pulis is keen to get Kightly on board but Wolves want to keep hold of the winger and are reported to have already rejected one bid of £2million.
Stoke are reluctant to go higher than that for a player who only has 12 months remaining on his contract but reports claim they could now throw in Higginbotham as part of the deal.
The defender no longer figures in the plans of Pulis and spent the second half of last season on loan at Nottingham Forest. Pulis is keen to offload some of his fringe players and by offering Higginbotham to Wolves, could kill two birds with one stone.
Higginbotham would no doubt jump at the chance of regular football at Molineux but everything now hinges on Wolves, who may decide to cash in rather than risk losing Kightly for nothing in 12 months.
