LaLiga club Deportivo Alavés are thought to be very close to completing a season-long loan move for Stoke City's former Barcelona forward Bojan Krkic.

It is understood that the 27-year-old, capped once by Spain, will arrive from the Premier League outfit in a deal not including a purchase option.

Krkic: spent second half of last season at Mainz

After falling down the pecking order at Stoke, Krkic spent the second half of 2016/17 at Bundesliga side Mainz 05, scoring once in 11 appearances in Germany.
