Sanchez Flores is expected to fly to England this weekend and complete the formalities that will see his salary vastly increase even before performance-related bonuses, while Stoke have had a delegation in Barcelona for the last few days in order to convince him to take the post. "I am and will be the manager of Espanyol".

Sanchez Flores, who is under contract with La Liga side Espanyol until 2019 but has a release clause in his deal, had been Stoke's first choice to replace Hughes.

"I belong to Espanyol. I'm well, absolutely content with my situation, and I don't have to explain anything else". Football brings up these kind of situations where clubs ask. here at Espanyol it is hard to move someone.

"Here I have all I need".

'We feel happy. We are in a happy place and we don't want to break that up'.




STOKE CITY have officially offered Ireland boss Martin O'Neill their vacant manager's job, according to reports.

Sanchez Flores emerged as Stoke's top target to succeed after the Potters had to abandon their hopes of luring away from Derby after he signed a new contract with the Championship outfit.

O'Neill emerged as a contender for the Stoke job after they sacked Mark Hughes earlier this month following a shock FA Cup defeat to League Two Coventry.

Stoke City will play Manchester United on Monday at Old Trafford under their caretaker manager, Eddie Niedzwiecki.
