Stoke City are in talks with Luton Town coach Nathan Jones over their vacant managerial position following the sacking of Gary Rowett, the Championship club (tier-two) said on Wednesday.

Jones led Luton to promotion from the fourth division last season, and are in the hunt to go up again this year with the club sitting second in League One.

Stoke are chasing the 45-year-old Welshman after they sacked Rowett on Tuesday, following a run of one win in six matches across all competitions.

The Staffordshire-based club were expected to make a swift return to the Premier League having spent the last 10 seasons in the top division, finishing ninth for three straight seasons from 2013-14.

However, the poor form that saw Stoke relegated has spilled over in the second division as they slipped to 14th in the standings after eight wins in 26 matches.
