The 24-year-old Holland international had been tipped to join the Potters in January - only for an injury to scupper the move.

Despite the departure of manager Tony Pulis and the arrival of Mark Hughes in his place, Stoke have maintained their interest in Pieters, who is expected to land in England on Thursday to finalise the deal.

A product of the FC Utrecht academy, PSV paid 2.5m euros for his services in 2008 and he has gone on to make 17 appearances for the national side.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
