Porto defender Bruno Martins Indi has arrived at Stoke to undergo a medical ahead of a loan move, according to Sky sources.
The Holland international is surplus to requirements at the Portuguese club and Stoke will have an option to sign him on a permanent basis after his loan is completed.
Martins Indi’s move to Stoke is likely to lead to Philipp Wollscheid completing a move to Wolfsburg.
Wollscheid is currently in Germany waiting for the green light from Stoke to process his move to the Bundesliga side.
Martins Indi has 31 international caps for Holland and was a key figure in the team which reached the World Cup semi-finals under Louis van Gaal in 2014.
