Stoke City are pushing to prise Mame Biram Diouf away from Hannover.

Stoke City are pushing to prise Mame Biram Diouf away from Hannover.

The Potters are in initial talks to sign former Manchester United striker Diouf from Hannover , says the Daily Star.

"They [Stoke] wanted to come over and have a personal chat. This is what we have done, they were welcome," said Hannover general manager Dirk Dufner.

"We have not reached an agreement.

"As far as I am concerned, Stoke feel we will automatically agree to a transfer at some point, as the contract expiry date is just 12 months off.

"But we do not plan to do so. I feel they will now consult, and then we will see whether we receive a written offer or not.

"We would think about that if Stoke agree to what we have told them."
