Stoke City will reportedly invite Leeds to the Clayton Wood training ground for a pre-season friendly on September 1.

If true, it will be the first pre-season fixture involving the newly-promoted Whites ahead of their Premier League campaign, which kicks off at Liverpool 11 days later.

Stoke were in action at the Bet365 Stadium earlier today (August 22) against Burton Albion, and played Linfield in Belfast last week. They also have friendlies against Shrewsbury Town and Newcastle United lined up.

Their season kicks off with a Carabao Cup tie against Blackpool next Saturday.

The two clubs last met in the Championship last month, when Marcelo Bielsa’s side swept aside the Potters 5-0 at Elland Road.

Michael O’Niell’s side have added Morgan Fox, James Chester and Steven Fletcher on free transfers so far this summer.
