VVV Venlo striker Michael Uchebo is eager to complete a move to Stoke City.

The big Nigerian has been on trial at the Britannia Stadium with a view to completing a permanent transfer to the Britannia.

The 21-year-old told Sky Sports: "My game and my physique are set for English football. Tony Pulis loves strong athletes but quality ones as well. Guys like Peter Crouch and Ricardo Fuller have decent technique.

"Hopefully the deal can go through and I will get my work permit and play my football on the bigger stage.

"VVV Venlo is a good starting point in the Eredivisie but the Premier League is a top league and a dream league for anyone who plays football."
