Stoke move for Pitroipa

Stoke are in talks to sign Jonathan Pitroipa from Rennes, Sky sources understand.

The Burkina Faso star is now understood to be heading to England for talks with the Midlands club.

The 27-year-old winger has been with Rennes since 2011, and has long been linked with a move to the Premier League.

Now Mark Hughes is looking to bolster his attacking options by completing the signature of Pitroipa.
