Lyon defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa wanted by Stoke

Olympique Lyon defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa is being linked with a return to England.

The former Newcastle United defender has been left at home by Lyon as they do their preseason in China.

RMC says Yanga-Mbiwa is interesting Montpellier, Stoke City and Zenit St Petersburg.

At Stoke, the 28 year-old could still arrive despite yesterday's loan deal for Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma.
