Stoke have rejected a £500,000 bid from Aston Villa for Republic of Ireland international Glenn Whelan, according to a report on Sky Sports.

Whelan, who has been a central figure in the Potters' team since joining in 2008, has a year left on his current contract but is wanted by Villa boss Steve Bruce.

The 33-year-old made 31 appearances last season for Stoke.

Whelan may find himself surplus to requirements at the Britannia after Darren Fletcher's arrival from West Brom.
