The Mirror states that the Potters are chasing the 28 year old who bagged eight goals in his last Premier League campaign. Hulse who has a year left on his Sheffield United contract was looking on the brink of joining Derby County but the bid was rejected.

The Potters currently have six strikers at the Brittania Stadium in Ricardo Fuller, Mamady Sidibe, Richard Cresswell, Jon Parkin, Adam Rooney and former Blade Vincent Pericard look to add another front man to that list.

Stoke finished 2nd in the Championship which meant they gained promotion to the promise land on the last day against Leicester City which subsequently sent them (Leicester) down.

Meanwhile the Staffordshire outfit claim they are eying Sunderland goalkeeper Marton Fulop according to The Mirror.
