Stoke ask Derby permission for Rowett talks

Derby County manager Gary Rowett

Stoke's superior transfer budget could well turn the head of Rowett who has made no secret of his desire to be a Premier League manager, and the Potters could offer him the best chance of achieving this goal.

The Derby County man led the Rams to the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Semi Finals this season, but they were beaten 2-1 on aggregate by Fulham.

Stoke are searching for a new boss after Paul Lambert left last week in the aftermath of their slide into the Championship.

Stoke City are reportedly poised to announce the appointment of Gary Rowett as the club's new manager.

An ability for the leagues to "protect our content and intellectual property from those who attempt to steal or misuse it". The NFL , according to ESPN's Don Van Natta , wants the sports books to pay for the rights to statistical data and video.

"The club is now in discussion with Stoke regarding the matter and will update our supporters in due course".

And it appears that Derby County's Gary Rowett is high on the list.

Stoke's 10-year stay in the top flight was ended with defeat by Crystal Palace in their penultimate match of the season, with Lambert unable to save them from the drop after succeeding Mark Hughes in January.

However, the relegated club have now revived their interest in the former Birmingham boss and a deal is close. Sources at Stoke have revealed that Rowett has been on Stoke's radar since his start at Burton Albion, with the 44-year-old also impressing in spells at Birmingham City and Derby.
