Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has ruled out any summer move for out-of-contract Leeds United left-back Charlie Taylor. Meanwhile, speaking ahead of his side's clash with Arsenal, the boss admitted the Potters are ready to listen to offers for club record signing Giannelli Imbula ahead of the upcoming window.
Taylor, 23, is expected to leave Elland Road in the coming months. He refused to play in the Whites' final game of the 2016-17 Championship campaign at Wigan Athletic last weekend.
The left-back is out of contract at the end of the current season and Tony Pulis revealed earlier this week that West Bromwich Albion are ready to take advantage of the situation.
Stoke were one of the other Premier League clubs linked with the Leeds rebel in recent weeks, but Hughes has now played down those rumours.
"Charlie Taylor is not a player we are involved in. We aren't looking to pursue anything. He isn't one of our targets," Hughes said in a press conference ahead of the visit of Arsenal on Sunday (14 May).
Elsewhere, the Stoke boss confirmed that Imbula could leave the Potters if a good offer arrives. The 24-year-old midfielder moved to Stoke from Porto in January last year for a club record £18m ($23.1m) fee but has since failed to justify that price tag, being restricted to just 12 Premier League appearances during the current season.
"It's fair to say with Giannelli that things haven't quite worked out. If there is interest in him then we would consider that. We haven't had any interest, in fairness, but we would look at things if the right offer came in for all three parties.
"Sometimes things just don't pan out as you hope. It has been a frustration for all parties involved. He hasn't quite adjusted to the Premier League."
