Stoke are set to sign a goalkeeper as competition for Steve Simonsen, but there is still doubt over who it will be. All summer the number one goalkeeping target has appeared to be Sunderland's Marton Fulop, and last week the two clubs agreed a fee for the Hungarian International. Fulop is then reported as saying he will be sorting things out today.However, there are now reports than Stoke are looking at Danish goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen who was recently released by Aston Villa. Sorensen would be available on a free transfer, although it is unclear if this would be instead of long-term target Fulop or as well as.
