The centre-back has only made two league appearance for Fulham since joining them in 2020, with much of that time hampered by injury. One came in the Championship during the 2019-20 season and the other in the Premier League the following season. He made no competitive senior appearances at all last season.

Earlier in his career he made over 130 appearances for Feyenoord, where he came through the academy, before moving on to Huddersfield and then to Fulham. All parties will be hoping he can kickstart his career again at Stoke, should he be able to earn a deal.

O'Neill told BBC Radio Stoke: "He's been training with us this week, which was a decision we were pleased that the player made first of all because he's a contracted player at Fulham. They accommodated that as well.

"He's had a difficult time the last couple of seasons with injury. We know what Terence is as a player. His pedigree's very high, he's played for some big clubs.

"It was just a chance for us to get our eyes on him. He's shown us in this brief time what his qualities are, but it's still a long way from coming to fruition, that deal, at the moment."
