STOKE City are reportedly in talks to bring Blackburn midfielder Steven N’Zonzi to the Britannia Stadium, according to Sky Sports.
N’Zonzi has been the subject of speculation from a number of clubs - including Sunderland - but it looks like Tony Pulis is in prime position to capture the versatile Frenchman.
The 23-year-old has refused to play for Rovers and is holding out for a return to the Premier League.
If he does sign, N’Zonzi will follow midfielder Charlie Adam to Stoke.
