Stoke do deal with US franchise
Stoke City have joined forces with a new American Soccer League team, the Austin Aztex.

Under the deal the Potters will hold pre-season training in the States and will share players with the Aztex.

Former Stoke manager Lou Macari told BBC Radio Stoke: "I don't think you can close the door on any country or venture. It's all got to be explored."

Stoke director Phil Rawlins has instigated the deal after acquiring the franchise to run the Texan club.
