VVV Venlo have revealed that negotiations over the transfer of striker Michael Uchebo to Premier League club Stoke City are at "an advanced stage".
The Nigerian is out of contract with his Dutch club next summer who are looking to offload him during the January transfer window as they do not have the funds to give him a new deal.
Stoke have been heavily linked with the 21-year-old highly rated forward and it is said that he will travel to England next weekend to hold talks with the Potters.
And VVV chairman Hai Berden has now revealed that discussions are already going on well among all parties concerned.
"In regards to the transfer of Uchebo to Stoke City, we are at an advanced stage," he told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.
"But there is a possibility that we will get him on loan."
