As revealed by skysports.com over the weekend, Stoke are in talks with Monaco about a season-long loan deal for Gudjohnsen.

Gudjohnsen is keen on a move away from Monaco after falling down the pecking order at Stade Louis II.

The 31-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Tottenham and scored in their 2-1 win at Stoke last season.

A permanent move to Spurs failed to materialise, but Stoke are now ready to offer the Iceland international a return to the Premier League.

"We have inquired about him," Coates told The Sentinel.

"We have talked about getting him on a 12-month loan because we think he could be a good player for 12 months, and maybe after that.

"But whether it happens or not, or how far we will get, we just don't know yet."
