Former Chelsea star John Obi Mikel has been pictured arriving in Stoke as he is set to complete a medical ahead of his move to the Championship side.
The Nigerian midfielder is currently a free agent after leaving Turkish outfit Trabzonspor by mutual consent back in March.
Stoke have been in talks with Mikel for a couple of weeks and he is set to sign a one-year deal with the West Midlands club.
And a picture of the former Chelsea and Middlesbrough player was doing the rounds on social media as he headed to the club’s Clayton Wood training ground.
Mikel made 249 Premier League appearances for Chelsea in an 11-year spell, which ended when he left Stamford Bridge in 2017.
He won the Champions League and Europa League, two Premier Leagues, three FA Cups and the League Cup with the London side.
After leaving Stamford Bridge he joined Chinese side Tianjin TEDA and had a brief spell at Middlesbrough in 2019.
Mikel played 23 times for Trabzonspor in the last year but he left the club days after expressing his concern that the Turkish Super Lig was continuing amid the global coronavirus pandemic.
Stoke are looking to strengthen their side after finishing 15th in the Championship under former Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill.
Mikel’s arrival at the club could be announced and it would be their fourth signing of the summer.
