Flores in the frame succeed Mark Hughes at Stoke

Flores in the frame succeed Mark Hughes at Stoke

Stoke officials are said to already be in Barcelona to finalise a contract with Flores and are "convinced" he's going to say yes to their proposal.

However, Flores preferred to focus on Espanyol's cup exploits rather than discuss himself after seeing his side overcome a first-leg deficit against Levante to reach the quarter-finals. "It's a big day for Espanyol and I don't want to talk about me".

Spanish journalist Guillem Balagué also reported that Sanchez Flores has been offered the job, and posted an update on his YouTube channel claiming that the 52-year-old will accept it. "I want to continue being happy with my profession".

Stoke have also spoken to former Leicester, Aston Villa, Celtic and Sunderland boss O'Neill.

Balague said a five-year proposal from Stoke would tempt Flores after a tenure of broken promises at Espanyol. I'm very grateful to Espanyol, I've been frustrated sometimes because we haven't advanced as fast as desired, but that's because Espanyol haven't been able to, not because they haven't wanted to.

But there is even a suggestion in Spain that he could still be with Espanyol's for Sunday's game against Athletic Bilbao.

With Martin O'Neill's future as Ireland manager still up in the air due to links with the vacant Stoke City job, it appears that he is now a back-up plan for the Potters, according to reports.

Charlie Adam says the Stoke players have not been good enough this season.
