Moving on: Ricardo Fuller is set to leave Stoke this summer

Cardiff and Ipswich are leading the chase to sign Ricardo Fuller this summer with the striker set to bid farewell to Stoke.

The Jamaica international has spent six years at the Britannia Stadium playing a key part in club’s rise from the Championship to Barclays Premier League mainstays since he signed for £500,000 from Southampton in 2006.

But the 32-year-old has made just one league start this season and is seeking a fresh start having grown frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities.

Fuller has slipped behind the pecking order with Peter Crouch, Cameron Jerome, Jonathan Walters and Kenwyne Jones all favoured before him.

Wigan are also monitoring Fuller but it looks likely that he will drop down a division next season.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis admitted it would be a sad day when Fuller leaves, describing the hitman as one of the club’s finest ever players.

He said: ‘Whatever happens with Ric, he has been one of the best players to have ever represented this club.’
