Stoke City forward Lee Gregory targeted by Championship rivals Derby County and Huddersfield

Stoke City striker Lee Gregory is attracting interest from Derby County and Huddersfield Town.

The 31-year old has one year left on contract and Stoke are re-shaping their squad.

Gregory scored six goals in 40 Championship games last season as Michael O’Neill’s side avoided relegation to League One with one game to spare.  

Last term was the first time the striker has failed to score double figures in a league season since 2015, with the former Halifax Town striker managing to score ten or more goals in each of his last four seasons with Millwall.  

Meanwhile, the Potters have dropped their asking price on goalkeeper Jack Butland and are closing on agreement over a one year deal for former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel.

The former Nigeria captain, 33, is a free agent having left Turkish side Trabzonspor by mutual consent in March.

Stoke have been in talks with Mikel for a couple of weeks and agreed terms with another free agent Steven Fletcher last week.

Mikel made 249 Premier League appearances for Chelsea in an 11-year spell, which ended when he left Stamford Bridge in 2017.

He won the Champions League and Europa League, two Premier Leagues, three FA Cups and the League Cup with the London side.
