Bojan Krkic to make Stoke City loan transfer switch?
Reports from Spain suggest that Stoke City have won the race to sign Bojan Krkic from Barcelona on a season long loan deal. The 23-year-old, formerly of AS Roma, is not a part of Nou Camp manager Luis Enrique's long term plans.
Having secured a deal to sign Liverpool forward Luis Suarez, Barcelona are gradually reducing the size of their squad and have already allowed Alexis Sanchez to leave for Arsenal. Stoke City could now be the next benficiary of Barcelona's clean up as Bojan Krkic looks set to be allowed to leave on a loan deal.
The 23-year-old has yet to fulfil the early promise shown in his teenage years, despite spells playing in both the Netherlands and in Italy.
Krkic is hoping that a spell in the Premier League will do his career good and Mark Hughes is said to have done everything in his power to push through a deal for the Spaniard.
A deal is expected to be announced in the next seven days.
