Fosu, 26, has slipped down the pecking order with the Bees in the Premier League.

According to The Telegraph reporter John Percy, he is ‘set’ to link up with Michael O’Neill’s side (see tweet below):

Fosu situation

Brentford have signed Keane Lewis-Potter and Mikkel Damsgaard in his position in this transfer window which has pushed Fosu further out of the picture.

Thomas Frank’s side swooped to sign him back in 2020 and he has since made 63 appearances in all competitions for the London club, chipping in with five goals in all competitions.

He helped the club gain promotion to the Premier League in his second campaign but has seen his minutes dry up now.

Prior to his move to Brentford, he had previously played for the likes of Reading, Charlton Athletic and Oxford United in the Football League.

A switch to Stoke now will enable Fosu to show what he can do in the second tier again and potentially become one of their main players.

The Potters have won one out of their opening three matches and were beaten 3-1 away at Huddersfield Town last time out.

In other Brentford news, Ivan Toney has given an insight into his duel with Manchester United new boy Lisandro Martinez on Saturday.

He has said, as per a report by the Manchester Evening News:

“To be fair to him he was doing well and was very aggressive for a centre-back. Obviously, if he gets beaten in the air he does well on the floor.

“It was a 50-50 and sometimes I got the better of him and sometimes he got the better of me. It is a compliment for me, him getting subbed off at half-time - but whether it was for me or for a different thing they wanted to do we won’t worry.”
