Former AC Milan striker and Champions League winner Andrei Shevchenko could make a return to the Premier League with FA Cup finalists Stoke City, reports the Guardian

The Ukrainian hitman is currently applying his trade with Dynamo Kiev but is expected to take his leave this summer.

Tony Pulis, whose Stoke side have punched above their weight ever since they were promoted into the Barclays Premier League, is attempting to lure the player back to the Premier League after his spell with Chelsea.


Shevchenko's career in west-London with Chelsea was littered with criticism of his desire and form, and after two seasons with the Blues he moved back to Milan.

The forward popped up back in England to score against the national side in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley and for Kiev in the club's tie against Manchester City in the Europa League.

Stoke have recently reached their first ever FA Cup after demolishing Bolton Wanderers, and with an appearance in Europe next season perhaps in the offing, Pulis has reason to be optimistic that the former Chelsea man can be tempted to the Britannia Stadium.
