Stoke set to make a move for Norwich winger Nathan Redmond in the transfer window

Stoke are set to revive their interest in Nathan Redmond following Norwich's relegation, Press Association Sport understands.
The winger is expected to leave Carrow Road this summer, with his contract due to expire next year, after the Canaries dropped out of the Barclays Premier League on Wednesday night.
Stoke boss Mark Hughes failed in a move for the England Under-21 international after the Canaries were relegated from the top flight in 2014.
Redmond stayed and helped the Canaries return at the first attempt - scoring in their 2-0 Sky Bet Championship play-off final win over Middlesbrough last year.
But a second spell in the Championship does not appeal to the 22-year-old and Alex Neil will need funds to help finance a rebuilding job in Norfolk.
Crystal Palace and West Ham are also reportedly interested but Hughes holds a long-term interest in Redmond, who is expected to cost around £9million, and a move would allow him to return to the Midlands.
Redmond, a £3.2m signing from Birmingham in 2013, has scored six goals for Norwich this season but could not stop them dropping out of the top flight.
He netted in their 4-2 win over Watford on Wednesday but Sunderland's 3-0 victory over Everton left them four points from safety with just one game left.
Redmond has also been selected for the England Under-21 squad ahead of the Toulon Tournament this month.
