Stoke City to keep Jonathan Walters
Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is happy to keep striker Jonathan Walters for the final year of his contract at the club.
The Republic of Ireland international has been a regular at the club since his move from Ipswich Town in 2010.
However, the talented forward has stalled on talks over a contract extension as he seeks an improved wage structure.
Hughes has now revealed that the Potters are ready to run down Walters' contract, with the hope of getting an extension done during the season.
Norwich City are understood to have recently had a bid knocked back for the 31-year-old striker.
