Stoke City reportedly approach Derby County for permission to discuss their vacant managerial position with the Championship club's boss Gary Rowett.

Stoke City have reportedly approached Derby County for permission to discuss their vacant managerial position with the Championship club's head coach Gary Rowett.

Stoke are currently on the lookout for a new manager following the departure of Paul Lambert at the end of last week.

The Potters are believed to want a new head coach in place as soon as possible, and according to Sky Sports News, Rowett is the leading candidate for the position.

The 43-year-old, who signed a new three-and-a-half-year deal with Derby in the early stages of 2018, led the Rams into the Championship playoff semi-finals before losing to Fulham.

Stoke, meanwhile, will play Championship football next season for the first time since the 2007-08 campaign following their relegation from the Premier League.
