Stoke midfielder Imbula wanted by Newcastle, Crystal Palace

Stoke City midfielder Giannelli Imbula is wanted back in the Premier League.

The Sun says Newcastle United and Crystal Palace are competing for Stoke's £18million flop Imbula.

The Potters signed the France Under-21 midfielder from Porto for a club record fee in January 2016.

However, Imbula fell out of favour with then manager Mark Hughes, and joined Toulouse on a season-long loan last summer.

The former Guingamp and Marseille ace revived his career by making 34 appearances to help the Ligue 1 club stay up.

Stoke have meanwhile dropped into the Championship, and are ready to listen to offers for 26-year-old Imbula.
