Chelsea youngster Dujon Sterling is to 'undergo a loan at Stoke today' ahead of completing a season-long loan move to the Championship side

  • Dujon Sterling is said to be undergoing a medical at Stoke City this afternoon
  • The 22-year-old is looking to compete a loan-deal with the Championship club
  • Sterling signed a two-year contract extension before going on loan to Blackpool
  • He linked up with the Chelsea squad during their pre-season tour this summer

Dujon Sterling is said to be undergoing a medical at Stoke City this afternoon as he looks to complete a loan-deal with the Championship club before the transfer window closes.

Sterling signed a two-year contract extension with Chelsea before going out on loan to Blackpool in August 2021. He excelled upon his arrival at the club but a minor ankle injury cut his time in the Championship short.

Blackpool manager Neil Critchley gave Tuchel great feedback on Sterling - earning him a call-up to Chelsea's pre-season tour this summer. However, he failed to cement a place in the club's starting XI.

Therefore, a host of clubs registered their interest in signing the 22-year-old during the summer transfer window. Those include: Stoke, Queens Park Rangers and Preston North End. 

According to The Athletic, Stoke City have been tracking the Chelsea defender for a substantial period of time as they are in need of a right wing-back.

The report states that Stoke's new manager Alex Neil convinced Sterling to join Stoke on a season-long loan deal.

The 22-year-old was energised by the project at the Championship club and said he would like to be involved in their mission for the 2022-2023 campaign. 

Therefore, Sterling is set to undergo a medical at the club later today - with a deal expected to be announced soon after.   

Tuchel was hoping Sterling - who made his Chelsea debut under Antonio Conte in 2017 - would be able to fill the void left by Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen. 

The two former Chelsea defenders left Stamford Bridge earlier this summer - joining Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively. 

Tuchel handed Sterling his chance during Chelsea's pre-season tour but he failed to make the grade and fell back down the pecking order under the German manager.
