Stoke fighting to save Popov deal

Published Add your comment

Stoke have not given up hope of bringing in Dynamo Kiev full-back Goran Popov on loan despite the Macedonian failing to receive international clearance.

A season-long deal had been agreed but the Potters are now fighting to salvage the situation and secure Popov a work permit.

The 27-year-old, who came to Stoke boss Tony Pulis' attention in the two Europa League matches between the clubs last season, has played 42 times for Macedonia but the country is ranked only 102nd in the world.
