Many Stoke City fans have taken to social media to react to a tweet by football journalist Alan Nixon which suggests that Sheffield United, Blackburn Rovers, Millwall and Nottingham Forest are all interested in signing Sam Clucas this summer.
The 30-year-old midfielder has been transfer listed for free at the Bet365 Stadium as the Potters look to cut costs and could well leave for pastures new after a frustrating campaign with the Stoke-on-Trent side.
Clucas made just 25 appearances for Michael O’Neill’s men as they finished in mid table, with the Lincoln born midfield player notching up two goals and three assists across all competitions.
Now it appears that he could be a wanted man this summer, with a quartet of clubs seemingly in the race for his signature.

Naturally the news prompted a lot of reaction amongst the Stoke City fanbase on social media, with many taking to Twitter to air their views on the matter earlier today.
Good player but 30 ish k a week is too much for us in our state. I’d wish him well as he has been an excellent player for stoke

Wouldn’t have repeated his 19/20 numbers but he’s got goals in him regardless. Should keep him tbh. https://t.co/lXPkps87NH

Can someone explain to me why Clucas is available on a free? https://t.co/l16lsEXmfV

I understand the situation we are in financially, but I’d be sad to see Clucas go. He’s been a reliable player for us, there are a few midfielders on our books I rate a lot less than him.

I’d say good. Think a rebuild is needed across the board and as good as he can be, just makes sense to free up as many spaces in this squad as possible

Makes lots of financial sense, and not sure there is a place for him in MON’s system really. Been brilliant for us but a good time to move on for both parties.
