The Stoke city midfielder Wilson Palacios could be set for an exit from the club after less than a year after joining the club for around £ 8 million from Tottenham. The Honduras midfielder was expected to be a major part of the Stoke city line-up for the next few years, but it seems that he has fallen out of favour with the manager Tony Pulis for reasons unknown.
The 28-year-old midfielder has been linked with every major club in the Premier league, while the Spanish club Valencia are also showing interest in the player. The hard tackling midfielder arrived from Tottenham in a £ 8 million deal one year ago.
However, he has had very little opportunities to play in the first team of the club due to various reasons including injuries. It was expected that he would finally be cleared of the injury problems and would be a regular for Stoke city this season. In a major development just ahead of the close of the transfer window, Wilson Palacios has started training with the youngsters at the club and not with the first team. This has intensified the rumours linking him with a move abroad with Valencia showing a lot of interest.
Wilson Palacios was one of the player is expected to be part of the starting line-up in the league cup match against Swindon. However, the manager Tony Pulis decided to omit him from the squad just hours before the match. The reasons for this omission from the squad are not clear, but he has now started training with the youth team players at the club. He is once again not expected to be part of the match against Wigan during the weekend. Stoke city lost the match 4-3 to Swindon and were knocked out of the competition.
