The Republic of Ireland international has made just four starts and nine substitute appearances in the league for the Potters so far this season, scoring three goals in the process, according to WhoScored.
The Sun on Sunday (print edition, page 61, January 26, 2020) has claimed that Stoke are worried about letting the former Brentford forward join another Championship relegation candidate, with the Potters fighting for survival in the division.
The report has added that Stoke are paying half of Hogan’s £40,000-a-week salary.
