STOKE have pulled out of a move for Han­nover striker Mame Diouf af­ter be­com­ing frus­trated with the ne­go­ti­a­tion process.

The Ger­man club have been quot­ing vastly dif­fer­ent ask­ing prices to the lo­cal press – rang­ing from £7mil­lion to £15m.

Now Pot­ters chief Mark Hughes has had enough and turned his at­ten­tions to other strik­ers in­stead.

Sene­gal in­ter­na­tional Diouf, 25, has pre­vi­ously played for Man United and Black­burn.

But Stoke chief exec Tony Sc­holes said: “We’re aware of the cov­er­age in Ger­many, which we have found sur­pris­ing.”
