Bruno Martins Indi has revealed he is in talks to make his loan move to Stoke permanent at the end of the season. The Netherlands defender joined the Potters from Porto on a season-long loan last summer and has started every game since making his debut in September as per Sky Sports.

He told in an interview to Sky Sports :

'We are talking to each other, the club and me. I have the intention to stay. We want to see what is going to happen. I was following Stoke City before I was here and I knew the way the manager wants to play. He gave me a lot of confidence to come here and he trusted me. (I'm) happy that I could give him that back.'

Martins Indi insists he is keen to pledge his long-term future to the club and continue to repay the faith shown in him by manager Mark Hughes. A seventh-place finish in the Premier League this season is likely to yield a spot in the Europa League, with Everton currently in pole position to benefit. Despite Stoke being 11 points behind the seventh-placed Toffees, Martins Indi is relishing the challenge of attempting to catch Ronald Koeman's side

He also said

"That's the biggest challenge for us,We're going to get there, it's going to be difficult, but it's a project I really like and I want to see how far we can go.

We're are now on a good run and we're confident. People inside the club have already spoke about seventh, it's a very good aim to get there and it's going to be difficult.

We just have to focus game by game and get the points."

He also said nothing is done as of yet as he said talks are on going and once confirmed will let the media know about it.
