Stoke monitoring Gudjohnsen’s Monaco situation

Stoke City have confirmed their interest in Monaco striker Eidur Gudjohnsen.

The Potters want to bring in the Iceland international and former Chelsea and Barcelona star on a season-long loan.

"We have enquired about him," Stoke chairman Peter Coates told The Sentinel.

"We have talked about getting him on a 12-month loan because we think he could be a good player for 12 months, and maybe after that."

The 31-year old spent most of last season on loan with Tottenham and has been linked with another move away from Monaco for some weeks now.
