The 21-year-old defensive midfielder, who has impressed in two reserve outings, has been given time to settle since a £2.75million move from Uruguayan outfit Club Nacional just before the transfer deadline.

None of Stoke's starting line-up from Saturday's draw at Bolton are likely to feature, but the likes of James Beattie, Tuncay, Danny Higginbotham, Liam Lawrence and Andy Wilkinson could be included.

Potters (from): Simonsen, Wilkinson, Cort, Higginbotham, Griffin, Lawrence, Arismendi, Amdy Faye, Pugh, Beattie, Tuncay, Cresswell, Tonge, Soares, Sorensen, Dickinson, Shotton, Wedderburn, Lund, Parton.
