Lambert future at Stoke decided today

Stoke City boss Paul Lambert is set for talks over his future today.

The Daily Mail says Lambert is set to meet Stoke vice-chairman John Coates on Friday for crunch discussions about his future.

The Stoke board have been weighing up the manager's position after relegation and a decision is expected now the transfer window has opened.

Owner Peter Coates is believed to think Lambert did an adequate job amid dressing-room indiscipline but a parting has been on the table after a run of only two wins in 15 Premier League games.

John Coates is said to be the influential voice now and he may prefer a candidate with a continental background should Lambert leave.
