Stoke City are hoping to tie up a deal for Wilson Palacios in the next 48 hours according to BBC Sport.
The Tottenham midfielder has been tipped to move to the Potters over the past couple of weeks and it now looks as if a deal is nearing completion.
Palacios joined Spurs from Wigan for £12m in 2009 and the transfer fee which Stoke are willing to pay is said to be around £6m.
Peter Crouch has also been linked with Stoke, but there is no further news on a move for him.
