Bojan Krkic wants to cut short his stay at Alaves to return to Stoke City this month after failing to land first team football, according to reports.
The 27-year-old has started only three league matches for the Basque club this season but has netted only once in Vitoria, in a Copa Del Rey clash against Getafe in November.
A report in The Daily Mirror suggests the former Barcelona and Roma forward is keen on a return to the Bet 365 Stadium this month and fight for his place in the team, following the dismissal of manager Mark Hughes.
Stoke’s forward Jese Rodriguez is rumoured to be ending his loan spell with the club this month to go to Las Palmas from Paris Saint-Germain.
