Stoke City midfielder Wilson Palacios is edging closer to moving to Qatar.

The Sentinel says Palacios is ready to end his three-year Stoke City nightmare by sealing a £1m switch to Qatar.

The once-highly rated Honduras midfielder has barely figured for the Potters after Tony Pulis took a £6m gamble to sign him from Tottenham.

Palacios is deep in talks with Qatar Sport Club in the cash-rich Qatar Stars League and could complete his transfer this weekend.
