Stoke manager Mark Hughes expects to complete a deal to sign Peter Odemwingie from Cardiff on Monday, with Kenwyne Jones going in the opposite direction.

Hughes has moved to recruit controversial Nigeria forward Odemwingie to add to his attacking options, with Trinidad and Tobago forward Jones going in the opposite direction.

Following Sunday's 1-0 FA Cup fourth-round loss at Chelsea, Hughes said: "It should go through tomorrow and will be concluded then.

"We're pleased to get Peter in. He's a good Premiership player with experience at this level, a goal in him and a bit of pace - which we need to add to the squad.

"(I'm) Pleased to add him."
