Super Eagles legend John Obi Mikel is in Staffordshire ahead of a return to the English Championship.
The 33-year-old midfielder has been without a club since leaving Turkish side Trabzonspor under a dark cloud in March.
While the rumours of joining Stoke gathered pace last week, a social media picture has done the rounds on Monday, which is believed to be Mikel arriving at Stoke’s Clayton Wood training base.
The former Chelsea footballer is expected to complete a medical test before official announcement of a one-year deal.
Futaa will be keeping a close eye on the updates from Stoke.
