Stoke have confirmed they are holding talks with Kenwyne Jones after agreeing a 'record' deal with Sunderland on Wednesday.
The Trinidad & Tobago striker has travelled to the Britannia Stadium to discuss a possible move with manager Tony Pulis and chief executive Tony Scholes.
Jones is currently undergoing a medical at the club.
Stoke have refused to divulge what fee they have agreed with Sunderland, describing the deal as 'a club record transfer'.
The club's current recording signing is Robert Huth, who cost The Potters £6million when he joined from Middlesbrough in the summer of 2009.
Jones has a proven goalscoring record at Premier League level and bagged a total of 26 league goals in 94 appearances for The Black Cats.
The 25-year-old has already had a spell with Stoke, making 13 league appearances during a three-month loan stint from Southampton in 2005.
