Rumours are sweeping Ipswich that Stoke have had a late bid for striker Jon Walters accepted.

These unconfirmed reports of a £5m bid do make sense after earlier confirmed reports from Cardiff that the Bluebirds had rejected a second bid of over £5m for Welsh international, Joe Ledley and indicate that Tony Pulis has switched his attentions to luring Walters away from the Tractor Boys.

It’s been well known that Walters would like to leave Ipswich for a Premier League club and Stoke are reported to have been closely following him, but before today had not submitted a formal bid.

Any transfer deal must be completed before midnight tonight so, if this is true, the race is on.
