Inside sources from the club have also spoken about how Jake Livermore, who is a target for the relegated Hull City, is set for a switch to the Britannia stadium, while full back Adam Smith is also set for the exit.
It is believed that Livermore - who spent the last season at Hull on loan - would rather stay in the Premier League to help his chances of gaining a spot in the England national team, and as a result, has rejected a chance to move back to the KC Stadium.
It is believed that Stoke will be paying around £4,000,000.
Adam Smith is another one who is set for the exit. The 23 year old impressed manager Steve McClarren during his loan spell last year so much so that Derby are ready to bring the right back, back on a permanent contract, but will have to part with around £2,300,000 to get him.
Tottenham feel that a move would be best suited for both parties, with Tottenham preferring English duo Kyle Walker and Kyle Naughton.
