Stoke are on the brink of completing a deal to sign giant striker Michael Uchebo from Dutch outfit VVV Venlo.
The Nigerian is out of contract with his club in the summer, and they have therefore opted to cash in during the winter transfer window to avoid losing him on a free later in the year.

The 21-year-old forward, who is 6'5" tall is now expected to travel to England next weekend to hold talks with the Potters.
And VVV chairman Hai Berden has now revealed that discussions are already going on well among all parties concerned.
'In regards to the transfer of Ucheboto Stoke City, we are at an advanced stage,' he told Dutch newspaper DeTelegraaf. 'But there is a possibility that we will get him on loan.'
