The Daily Mirror is reporting that Chelsea starlet Daniel Sturridge is fielding an offer from Stoke, with Newcastle still interested in taking on the star.

Sturridge is widely rumoured to be exiting Chelsea, with the wonderkid desperate for some first team action. While Bolton are the obvious suitors for Sturridge, with the 21-year-old spending time there on loan this season, Newcastle had emerged as a destination where Sturridge would immediately be placed in the first team.

Newcastle also have the budget to take Sturridge on, with Alan Pardew preparing a busy summer with the £35 million from Andy Carroll’s sale.


Stoke have now entered the bidding for Sturridge though, with Tony Pulis tabling a £6 million bid for the striker.

While Chelsea have said in the past that they are planning on keeping Sturridge, the youngster wants to get more time on the pitch and doesn’t want to be sent out on loan again.

“Next season I want a starting place [at Chelsea] and maybe to get into the full England side as well,” Sturridge recently said.

"From there, I just want to try and win as many trophies as I can."

But a spot on the starting squad is not looking likely for Sturridge, with Nicolas Anelka, Didier Drogba and £50 million purchase Fernando Torres all featuring in the coveted forward line, leaving Newcastle, Bolton and Stoke in an apparent tug of war over the striker.
