Sky Sports sources understand that Peter Crouch has agreed to join Stoke and is waiting to finalise a switch from Tottenham.
The Spurs striker has been heavily linked with a deadline day move away from White Hart Lane.
Sunderland and Stoke have led the chase, with both clubs keen to snap up the England international.
Crouch has been mulling over his options, with opportunities set to be limited for him at Tottenham.
The arrival of Emmanuel Adebayor has convinced him to look elsewhere.
It is understood that after much thinking Crouch has decided to go with the Potters.
He has travelled north to complete a move, but is currently waiting for a few financial details to be tied up with Tottenham.
Once those issues have been resolved, he is expected to put pen to paper.
