Bojan mulling over Premier League move

The out-of-favor Barcelona striker has been heavily linked with a move to England in recent weeks and is a target for Stoke City
Bojan Krkic is mulling over a move to the Premier League with Stoke City after manager Mark Hughes revealed he is waiting on the Barcelona forward to make a decision over his future.

Peter Coates, the Stoke chairman, confirmed last week that Hughes has held positive talks with the 23-year-old, adding that the Premier League club was confident of reaching an agreement.

Deportivo La Coruna and Olympiakos are also reportedly monitoring Bojan's availability, with Hughes – a former Barca player – poised to find out whether the Spain international is heading to the Britannia Stadium.

"I haven't heard anything over the weekend, but will probably hear something soon," Hughes told The Sentinel.

"He's a young player who's proven at the highest level and once again he's a player who's different to what we have got here already.

"Yes, he has lost his way somewhat, but you don't play 100-odd games for a club like Barcelona unless you've got some ability."
