Cape Town - Stoke City will be prepared to splash the cash, should the right player become available, according to The club's chief executive Tony Scholes.

The club has broken their transfer record in each of the last two transfer windows, spending £12m on Xherdan Shaqiri in August before paying £18.3m on Gianelli Imbula in January.

"If the right player becomes available, it's not beyond the realms of possibility that we would do it again in the summer,” Scholes told The Sentinel.

"It's a little bit early to be saying there are developments on things but it's fair to say we are fine-tuning what our targets will be.

"There won't be any developments on that side, I don't think, for a little bit of time but it doesn't mean the work isn't being done."

The Potters will be looking to build on their ninth-place Premier League finish they achieved this campaign.
