Stoke City Agree Fee With Wolves Over Transfer Of Winger Michael Kightly

Forward to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical at Britannia Stadium.

Wolves forward Michael Kightly is set to join Stoke after the Potters confirmed they have agreed a fee for the 26-year-old with the Championship outfit.

Stoke had a £6 million bid rejected by Wolves last week but a renewed offer, thought to be in the region of £6.75 million, has now been accepted.

Kightly, who can operate as a winger or up front, had just one year remaining on his contract at Molineaux and had indicated his desire to play in the Premier League, despite enjoying a successful loan spell at Watford last season.

“Stoke City have today confirmed that they have agreed a transfer fee to bring Michael Kightly to the Britannia Stadium,” read a statement on the club’s official website.

“City have reached an agreement with Wolverhampton Wanderers over an undisclosed fee for the England Under-21 international.

“The 26-year-old midfielder is now due to have talks over personal terms with the Club and undergo a medical in the next 24 hours.”

Meanwhile, Stoke also confirmed that boss Tony Pulis and chief executive Tony Scholes were set to attend a meeting to determine the outcome of American international Geoff Cameron’s work permit application.

The powerful holding midfielder is hoping to join City from Houston Dynamos but the move is subject to him being granted a work permit at today’s hearing.
