Stoke City are understood to have bid for Norwich City winger Nathan Redmond.

The Sentinel says the Potters are remaining tight-lipped on reports claiming they have tabled a bid of around £3.5m for Redmond.

Norwich are understood to have dismissed the offer out of hand - and a similar bid from Southampton - for a player they value nearer the £6m mark.

Stoke's interest in the England under-21 star was revealed last week and now manager Mark Hughes is ready to put serious money on the table.
