Honduran to resurrect Potters career.
Stoke City midfielder Wilson Palacios is set to be handed a lifeline by new manager Mark Hughes by being given the opportunity to re-establish himself in the side, Sky Sports reports.
The Honduran international fell out of favour under Tony Pulis last season – making just nine appearances, and he had looked set to be heading for the exit at the Britannia stadium this summer.
However, there has been little to no interest in his services from other clubs and with pre season training starting next week now boss Mark Hughes is set to hand him a second chance with chairman Peter Coates confirming that everybody at the club will start on a level playing field.
“He will be back for pre-season training along with everybody else as things stand at the moment,” Coates said.
“I know he has played for Honduras recently and so let’s hope that has done him some good.
“Mark wants to have a good close look at everybody when they do return to the club because he wants to make his own assessment of what is in front of him.”
The chairman also confirmed that there have been no bids for any of the club’s other stars either.
“It is that time of year when everybody is away,” he said. “Things will start moving again when people begin returning from their holidays and the like.”
