Stoke City’s near neighbours Derby County are being linked with a move for striker Cameron Jerome.
Jerome, a Stoke player between 2011 and 2014, has spent the past couple of seasons in Turkey with Goztepe.
Now Derby reportedly fancy a shot at the 33 year-old by renewing acquaintances with a player who previously served them for a short time in 2018 before heading to Turkey.
Jerome had made his name with Cardiff and Birmingham by the time Tony Pulis signed him for Stoke for around £4m in 2011.
His time at the club was a largely frustrating one, however, and best summed up statistically by the fact he only started 15 league games and appeared from the bench in 35 more.
The first of his 12 goals in all competitions for Stoke came in a 1-1 draw at Dynamo Kiev in the Europa League – where he would also score and get sent off against Maccabi Tel Aviv.
Other highlights included a late winner at home to Newcastle and an even later equaliser, via a thunderbolt, in a 3-3 draw against Southampton at the Britannia.
