STOKE CITY’S new boss Alex Neil has his sights on Leicester City keeper Daniel Iversen.
Neil had the great Dane at Preston on loan and wanted him at Sunderland.
But the new Stoke boss missed out in the last window when he was still at the Stadium of Light.
However, Neil is going to push his money men to invest in Iversen.
And he may have a chance with the player if he is stuck as second choice with the Foxes.
Iversen, 25, has played just one game for Leicester.
That being the Carabao Cup triumph over Stockport last month.
But he impressed during 18 months on loan at Preston, some of which was during Neil’s time in charge.
Meanwhile, Dean Holden found out the hard way that football can be a hard business as he was sacked by old coaching school buddy Alex Neil.
Holden took caretaker charge of Stoke City and won his only game but within hours he was axed.

That game being an excellent 1-0 win away at Blackburn.
Ironically Holden had been on the same coaching course as Neil at the famous SFA headquarters in Largs.
