Stoke City appoint Luton's Jones as manager

Nathan Jones is expected to be named Stoke City manager within the next 24 hours after the club revealed they are in talks with the Luton Town boss.

The decision to turn to Jones represents a significant shift in Stoke's approach to managerial appointments, given the value that they have previously placed on experience.

Town are flying high in League One and now occupy one of the automatic promotion places as they look for back-to-back promotions into the Championship.

The 45-year-old will take over from Gary Rowett, who was sacked on Tuesday after less than eight months in charge.

Trump Still Undecided On Declaring Emergency To Build Border Wall
Trump stated in a Rose Garden news conference Friday: "This should have been done by all of the presidents that preceded me". Trump is scheduled to address the nation Tuesday night and lay out his case for the wall, which Democrats oppose.

The Town chief, who signed a four year deal in January 2018, completed his three year anniversary in charge at Kenilworth Road on Sunday, after a goalless draw with Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup third round.

"Stoke City can confirm that the club is in discussions with Nathan Jones over the vacant managerial position", the Sky Bet Championship club said on Twitter.

Jones - who played with Stoke's technical director Mark Cartwright at Brighton - impressed both club chairman Peter Coates and vice-chairman John Coates.

Jones task is to reboot Stoke's battle for an immediate return to the Premier League which has failed to materialise despite Rowett being allowed to spend heavily in the close season.
