A number of Championship clubs are understood to have made loan moves for out-of-favour Stoke striker Cameron Jerome.
Stoke boss Tony Pulis has ruled out a possible loan switch for Kenwyne Jones, but Jerome could be allowed to leave the Britannia Stadium after making just three substitute appearances in the Premier League this season.
The 26-year-old has started just seven league games in total for the Potters since a £4million switch from Birmingham City last summer, and he now finds himself behind Peter Crouch, Jon Walters, Michael Owen and Jones in Tony Pulis' pecking order.
Leeds are among the clubs to have been linked with a move for the former Cardiff forward after Pulis confirmed Jones would not be leaving.
"Kenwyne will not be going anywhere," he told the Sentinel.
"I haven't seen any other Premier League clubs selling players. There's been lots of enquiries about lots of players, but at the moment we want to look after ourselves.
"We had 25 in our Premier League squad and then let Jermaine Pennant go on loan to Wolves, so we don't want to be letting others go and then picking up three or four injuries."
