Stoke City are in talks with the former Norwich City defender Ben Gibson.

The former Middlesbrough and Burnley centre-back is to become a free agent on July 1st and Stoke City are very keen on bringing him to the bet365 Stadium.

The 31-year-old would add plenty of experience to Steven Schumacher's squad, as well as providing another option as a left-sided defender.

Gibson's success at Championship level is also attractive, having twice won promotion to the Premier League with both Middlesbrough and Norwich City.
