The 22-year old speedy Senegalese attacker has attracted the attentions of Potters boss Mark Hughes who has reportedly activated a release clause in his contract.

Saivet, who has been on Bordeaux's senior list since 2007, has drawn comparisons to Arsenal great Thierry Henry and is believed to be prepared to discuss personal terms with Stoke this weekend.
