Stoke City are eyeing Aston Villa winger Marc Albrighton.

The Sentinel says the 23 year-old speedster is in danger of dropping off the map at Villa Park under Paul Lambert and might jump at a move a few miles north.

Albrighton, Tamworth born and a graduate of the Villa academy, started 35 Premier League games in the two seasons before Lambert arrived.
