“Honestly, who knows? I don’t know what’s going to happen this summer,” Allen explained.
“People are expecting lots of ins and outs and we’re just going to have wait and see what the summer will bring for everyone really. We’ll go from there.”
“For me as well as every individual it’s about speaking to the club and going from there. That’s where I’m at and that’s it, really, at the moment.”
Joe Allen joined Stoke from Liverpool back in 2016 and only last summer signed a new four-year deal at the club.
The midfielder, however, would have expected Stoke to push for promotion back to the Premier League but a disappointing campaign now likely leaves his future in doubt alongside goalkeeper Jack Butland.
A recent report in the Telegraph claims both Watford and West Ham are interested in signing the Wales international, with the latter resurfacing their reported interest from 18 months ago.
Allen would not be worth that figure now, yet the 29-year-old still boasts plenty of quality and both West Ham and Watford may see him as an ideal midfield acquisition this summer ahead of next season.
The former Swansea City ace has started all 44 Championship games for Stoke this season, scoring six goals and posting a further four assists in what has been a disappointing campaign for the Potters.
