Steven Nzonzi: Stoke have rejected midfielder's transfer request

The 24-year-old Frenchman, who only joined the Potters from Blackburn last summer, set his sights on a move away from the Britannia Stadium before the departure of manager Tony Pulis.

However, Stoke's young player of the year still has three years remaining on his contract and the club are keen to keep him.

A statement on the club's website read: "Stoke City can confirm the club has rejected a written transfer request from midfielder Steven Nzonzi.

"Contrary to reports in the local media, the French midfielder tabled his request earlier this week before the departure of Tony Pulis from the Britannia Stadium.

"The club intend to make no further comment on this matter."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
