Joselu eyeing Stoke exit


Stoke City striker Joselu says he will work hard in pre-season as he waits to discover where he will be playing his football next season.

The 27-year-old Spanish striker joined the Potters in 2015 and played 27 times before being sent out on loan to Deportivo La Coruna last term.

He is back at the Bet365 Stadium ahead of their new campaign, but revealed he is keen to continue his career elsewhere, with Malaga one club reportedly mulling over whether or not formalise their interest.

He told Marca: "Now I wait. It's a warm summer, I have two years left at Stoke.

"We hope to have solutions as soon as possible and if not, I will work non-stop in pre-season. Whatever comes, may God want it to be good."

He added: "England is a complicated country for foreigners. In Stoke we had a difficult year [in the 2015/16 season], the three Spaniards we were there [Bojan and Muniesa]. There they have a very different idea from ours and I am open to any situation.

"It is always good for a club like Malaga to notice you, that means something," he added. "It is a great club, in a big city and with a great coach, like Michel."
