Stoke City are in talks with Joe Allen over a new contract.
Manager Gary Rowett wants Joe Allen to spearhead the club’s promotion charge next season.
Allen has three years left to run on his current deal, but now Stoke City automatically gave a pay-cut following the club’s relegation — this is the reason for fresh talks.
Stoke paid in the region of £13.5million for Joe Allen when he joined from Liverpool in 2016.
Talks are on going at this period but Stoke City are remaining confident keeping Joe Allen to help them to push for automatic promotion.
