Walters Again Linked With Stoke
Walters Again Linked With Stoke
Wednesday, 11th Jun 2008 08:57

Jon Walters is again linked with a move to Stoke City by one of this morning's tabloids. The striker was previously mentioned in connection with the Potters a week ago.

The report claims that Town's targeting of Newcastle's Shola Ameobi could lead to Walters's Portman Road exit, however, this seems unlikely. Regardless of moves for other strikers, Town wouldn't want to allow Walters to leave, particularly for the relatively low fee of £1 million which was previously reported.

The player himself signalled his intention to remain with the Blues in January when he signed a new contract tying him to Town until 2011. During the last transfer window Wigan were strongly linked with the 24-year-old.

Meanwhile, it's a quiet morning on the Ameobi front, aside from reports that Norwich are likely to have withdrawn from the race with fees in the region of £4 million currently beyond their means. The Canaries are now being linked with another Newcastle striker, Andy Carroll, who was a Town loan target a year ago, along with Derby County.

Elsewhere, former Blue Scott Mitchell has signed for Rushden and Diamonds from Peterborough. Mitchell only joined the Posh in January after two years with Livingston in Scotland and spent the end of last season on loan at Stevenage Borough.
