Stoke boss Lambert: Jese ready for Brighton

Stoke City boss Paul Lambert is ready to welcome back Jese.

Jese made the loan switch to Stoke from Paris Saint-Germain during the summer window, but has missed large periods of the campaign due to personal reasons.

The 24-year-old returned to Stoke training in January and Lambert confirmed he will be in the squad to face Brighton on Saturday.

"He's had a bit of time off and I thought his fitness levels were down a little bit from his personal stuff," said Lambert.

"But he's back, he played in a U23s game and he did well."
