Stoke move in for Sunderland’s Whitehead

Stoke City are reportedly moving in for Sunderland defender Dean Whitehead.

Potters boss Tony Pulis is keen to bring the 27-year old to the Britannia Stadium and it is believed Sunderland are happy for him to hold talks with their player.

Whitehead’s potential move to Ipswich to play under former boss Roy Keane recently fell through, giving Stoke the all-clear to make a play for him.
