The 24-year-old Dutch seems to be the perfect match for Stoke, despite the player's rough season. The club has been interested in Pieters, Stoke chairman Peter Coates revealed.

Pieters could be the right pick for the club's left-back next season. So far, the Stoke Potters have not enlisted any new players this summer while rivals Aston Villa and Fulham acquired several players by now.

"We are certainly looking for a left-back because we've only got Marc Wilson at the moment, and he was brought in as a midfield player,” Coates told The Sentinel.  

Coates said the decision to sign Pieters is yet to be finalized as they continue to search for alternatives, but he emphasized the player is an option.

Pieters suffered from a series of injuries, which narrowed his appearances for PSV to two in the previous season.
