Stoke City are interested in bringing Huddersfield Town winger Tom Ince to the Bet365 Stadium next season.


The Potters are on the hunt for a new winger, following the departure of their Swiss star Xherdan Shaqiri, who moved to ​Liverpool last week.


Freshly-relegated from the Premier League, the Potters are looking to bounce back to the top tier of English football as soon as possible and Ince's name appears to be on Stoke's wish list, according to Sky Sports News.

The Potters are keeping a close eye on the 26-year-old, who is currently on a pre-season tour with Huddersfield in Germany, ahead of the Terriers' friendly with Dynamo Dresden.


Sky Sports claim that the operation may have implications on Stoke's potential move for ​Newcastle United's Matt Ritchie. The clubs are thought to be in talks over the former Bournemouth star, with the Potters reportedly ready to table an offer of around £11.5m for the 28-year-old. The Magpies, though, are not willing to let him go for anything less than £15m.


Ince, who scored twice last season for the Terriers, would potentially reunite with Stoke's boss Gary Rowett. The talented winger played under Rowett during his time at Derby County, and impressed enough at the Rams to earn a move to the ​Premier League.

Ince still has two years remaining on his contract, but due to Huddersfield manager David Wagner's recent signing of Egypt international Ramadan Sobhi from Stoke City, means that the English winger could be forced out the door.
