Stoke considering making Olic move

Stoke boss Mark Hughes has confirmed the club's interest in signing Wolfsburg and Croatia striker Ivica Olic.

Olic, whose current contract runs out in the summer, was quoted in the last few days by Croatian newspaper Jutarnji List as saying he had held talks with Hughes and the Potters hierarchy.

It is fair to say he is an interesting player - one I have faced in the past and have always been impressed with.

There is an interest there and we'll see how it progresses.
