Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez is a shock contender for Tony Pulis' job at Stoke City.

The Mail on Sunday says Pulis is scheduled to meet chairman Peter Coates for their end-of-season review next week, with issues needing to be addressed on both sides.

Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay would be a strong contender for the job if Pulis goes while Benitez may be an outside candidate.
