Steve Gohouri, the Borussia Monchengladbach defender, is being linked with Stoke and Sunderland. The 27 year old is understood to have suffered a bust-up with manager Hans Meyer and could be looking for an opportunity to leave Germany.

But Gohouri's representative, Rui Jorge, would not comment either way, telling "I do not have anything to say. Steve is fine, wait and see."
