Stoke City and Sunderland have both launched bids for Croatian international Ivan Strinic, according to the player's agent.

Stoke City and Sunderland have both declared an interest in signing Croatian international full-back Ivan Strinic this summer, according to the player's agent.

The 25-year-old was heavily linked with a move to Sunderland in January, but his club Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk decided against a sale.

Strinic's agent Tonci Martic has declared that both Premier League clubs are in for the defender but have so far failed to meet Dnipro's valuation.

He told 24Sata: "I read in newspapers that Juventus want Strinic but the truth is that nobody from that club talked with me about it.

"Some time ago we did but not only about Strinic. For now the most interested clubs come from the Premier League in England.

"Dnipro wants £7.6m, Stoke City and Sunderland offers little less than that though at the moment."

Strinic is a regular feature for Croatia and was ever-present at last summer's European Championships.
