There's no need for me to hold a certain nugget any further and I know you're all on edge for what will happen over the final 10 days of the summer transfer window. Thus, I will share exactly what I know of this no-longer-secret Stoke City variable in the Maurice Edu scene.
You may recall, I've previously reported that EPL clubs had been among those sizing up the Rangers midfielder. Put simply, I will now confirm that Stoke City has indeed been in the Edu crowd for a time.
However, I cannot at this time tell you whether Stoke has put an offer on the table or if they're closing on a deal. They may well be, so I'm trying to find out.
So to summarize: Yes, you can definitely go ahead and believe they want him. Beyond that distinct line, I flat out do not know yet.
