Chelsea striker Fernando Torres is understood to be set for a return to Atletico Madrid, according to Sky sources.
Mark Hughes insists Stoke will not be looking to make any major additions in the January transfer window.
Hearts have confirmed winger Andrew Driver has left the club to join MLS side Houston Dynamo.
Driver, who becomes the latest first-team player to leave Tynecastle, will join the Dynamo on loan until his Hearts deal expires in the summer.
A statement on the club website read: "The club wishes Andrew all the best as he continues his career with this fantastic opportunity to play in America."
