It could be a busy deadline day for the Ireland forward

Jonathan Walters has reportedly submitted a transfer request.

Sky Sports News HQ are reporting that the Stoke City forward has told the club he wants to leave, with Norwich City a possible destination.

The newly promoted Premier League club have had two bids for Walters rejected, while West Brom are also reportedly interested in the 31 year old.

Walters joined Stoke from Ipswich Town in 2010, and went on to make 217 appearances, scoring 51 goals. The club had offered the Liverpool-native a new contract, but Walters turned it down. Sky Sports have said the player wanted a new three year deal, but Stoke only offered a one year extension.

The player was absent from Ireland training in Dublin today, with manager Martin O’Neill revealing the player was in England trying to sort out his club future.

“There may be something happening although he’s not terribly sure at this minute but while there is the possibility of something happening to him then I think it’s best that he sees it (from England) until the transfer deadline is finished.”

Stoke fans showed their appreciation for the forward on Twitter this evening.
