Mark Hughes has conceded Stoke may struggle to attract top players to the Britannia Stadium in the summer if they are rivalled in their pursuits by Tottenham. Stoke host title-chasing Tottenham on Monday Night Football - live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 7pm - aiming to boost their chances of securing European football for next season. The Potters have twice broken their transfer record in the previous eight months, with the £18.3m addition of Giannelli Imbula in January usurping the £12m laid out for Xherdan Shaqiri last August. Stoke also had a £21m bid for Saido Berahino rejected by West Bromwich Albion in January, a player Spurs unsuccessfully attempted to lure to White Hart Lane last summer. Giannelli Imbula has impressed in the Premier League since joining Stoke from Porto in January Reports in Mondays national newspapers suggest both clubs will revive their interest in Berahino in the summer and Hughes has admitted that Stoke will find it hard to convince a player to join them if Spurs are also interested. By all accounts, Spurs will always have an interest in quite a few players we are interested in, the Stoke manager said.There are players out there who you express an interest in - but because they are good players, there will always be other teams involved. Xherdan Shaqiri has scored three times in 29 appearances during his debut season for Stoke. If were being realistic, if a player has a choice of Spurs or Stoke, then we could pitch up and make a good case for them to come here.But they may feel Spurs is a more attractive option and we have to accept that.

Jerseys NFL China . -- Bryant McKinnie came out of his stance and lowered his shoulder into a practice squad player, causing a crisp thud to reverberate in the Miami Dolphins practice bubble. DES MOINES, Iowa -- Long before they developed two of the better players in America, Iowas Peter Jok and Northern Iowas Jeremy Morgan were friends and rivals on the states summer hoops circuit.Jok and Morgan will meet again Saturday in Des Moines.Jok, the nations leading scorer among Power Five programs at 23.8 points per game, will lead the Hawkeyes (5-5) against Morgans Panthers (5-4) in the annual doubleheader featuring Iowas four Division I programs. The other game pits Iowa State (6-3) against Drake (1-8).The opener features long-time friends in Jok and Morgan (18.1 points per game), who likely wouldve played together in Iowa City if coach Fran McCaffery had a scholarship left for Morgan.Jeremy has always been a terrific player. I saw him as a young kid. I really wanted to have him badly, McCaffery said. But we felt like Pete was the best fit at that time. If we had two or three scholarships he would have been offered without hesitation.McCaffery went with Jok over Morgan because he needed a shooter and he certainly got one. Jok has already scored at least 30 points three times this season and is shooting 41 percent from 3-point range.Morgan took longer to develop, but hes turned into one of the nations top overall players as a senior. Morgan is also averaging 7.3 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 3 steals and nearly 2 blocks per game -- and he scored 38 points in the second half of last weeks win over North Dakota.I knew that he would come out and be a great leader, which hes been, Jok said of Morgan. I keep a watch out for them every time they play because theyve got a lot of Iowa guys over there.But Jok and Morgan wont be the only guys suiting up for the final time for an event once known as the Big Four Classic. Here are some of the other story lines to follow:STRUGGLING CYCLONESIowa State tumbled out of the Top 25 for the first time in three years on Monday after droppinng three of its last four.dddddddddddd Thats bad news for the Bulldogs, who will be playing for just the second time after coach Ray Giacolettis abrupt resignation . The Cyclones have improved defensively, but their high-powered offense has struggled of late. Expect them to take their frustrations out on Drake, which hung with Iowa in this event a year ago.YOUNG HAWKSIowas next three top scorers after Jok are freshmen, whove made McCafferys rebuilding efforts seem ahead of schedule. Perhaps the most promising newcomer is Dubuque (Iowa) Wahlert product Cordell Pemsl, who has averaged 17 points a game since entering the starting lineup. Pemsl has even evoked comparisons to former Iowa State star Georges Niang because of his unique ability to score inside.PANTHER POWERMorgan, like Jok, is scoring at a career-high clip partly because his team needs him to. The Panthers dont have a ton of established players, but redshirt freshman Spencer Haldeman and junior Klint Carlson have begun to emerge are key pieces and forward Bennett Koch is shooting 61 percent from the field.DRAKE TAKEThe Bulldogs havent beaten a Division I opponent yet, so its tough to find much positive about the Bulldogs. But junior guard Reed Timmer is a keeper, averaging 15.7 points a game, and junior college transfer T.J. Thomas has strengthened Drakes frontcourt. The Bulldogs also nearly beat DePaul and Fresno State before Giacoletti walked away.NOT SO NEUTRALThe doubleheader was conceived in part because Iowa and Iowa State were tired of their annual home-and-home arrangements with Northern Iowa. Still, the Panthers beat Iowa in 2014 and Iowa State last year in Des Moines. UNI also pushed the Cyclones to overtime in 2013.---More college basketball at China NFL Jerseys White Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale NFL Hoodies Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirts Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale NFL T-shirts Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Black China NFL Jerseys ' ' '
