Brentford have agreed a deal to sell Ryan Woods to Stoke City.

The midfielder, 24, is set to move on loan until January ahead of a £7m permanent move when the transfer window reopens.

Swansea City have also been interested in Woods, who joined the Bees from Shrewsbury three years ago.

He is expected to undergo a medical on Friday afternoon and then finalise his move.
