Stoke City have joined the list of clubs interested in a January move for out-of-favour Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon, according to reports.

The right winger has found game time hard to come by at White Hart Lane this season under new boss Mauricio Pochettino. Lennon has only started three league games this season and the Potters have a made a move for the England international, according to ESPN.

The speculation suggests Spurs are looking for a fee in the region of £7million for their current longest serving player, who joined for just £1million from Leeds United back in 2005.

The 27-year-old has also been linked with Hull City, Leicester, QPR and Inter Milan in recent weeks, as well as West Brom and West Ham, and is behind Nacer Chadli, Andros Townsend and Erik Lamela in the pecking order for one of two wing slots.

With Alex Pritchard looking likely to return from a productive loan spell at Championship Brentford this month, Pochettino has plenty of options in the wide positions and may see Lennon's sale as a way of freeing up squad space and transfer funds.

Lennon is determined to show his manager he has a role at the club but the chance for regular first team football however, and a long term contract on good wages, may be enough to tempt him to believe that his future lies away from North London.

Spurs currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, two points behind Southampton in the final Champions League place. Next up, they travel to Burnley in the third round of the FA Cup.
