Mark Hughes confirmed during Thursdays’ pre-match press conference that Glenn Whelan will be out for up to six weeks after an assessment confirmed the Republic of Ireland international had fractured his leg during the draw with Germany.
Originally it was thought that Whelan had suffered a knee ligament injury and the experienced midfielder was sent for a scan to help diagnose the problem but a fracture has now been confirmed. His absence will open the door for the versatile Geoff Cameron to potentially fill the void following his impressive cameo against Swansea - himself just returning from a spell out. The Stoke manager would be keen to utilise his US international centrally although with Phil Bardsley [back]emerging as a doubt for the trip to St Marys’ then he may have to play in his more familiar full-back role with Andy Wilkinson joining Millwall on loan earlier this week.

Glenn Whelan will be sent for a scan on Thursday after limping out of the Republic of Irelands’ dramatic draw with current World Champions Germany [in the Euro qualifiers] because of injury.

The ever-present Stoke City midfielder is now expected to miss game week eight and possibly quite a while longer if initial concerns regarding Whelans’ knee injury are confirmed. His absence could open the door for either Steve Sidwell or Stephen Ireland to fill the void – the pair have only started two games between them this campaign but both are more than capable of stepping up. However there was better news regarding the fitness of Victor Moses who has responded well to treatment during the international break – the winger returned to full training on Wednesday – and assuming he suffers no adverse reaction to his previous thigh problem the inform Nigerian should be available to face Swansea at the Britannia.

Glenn Whelan is out of the Republic of Ireland squad for their must-win against Austria with a hamstring injury.

Whelan, who was criticized after Ireland's loss to Sweden, is now a doubt for Manchester City's visit to Stoke at the weekend. With Charlie Adam also a doubt, that's a big midfield headache for the Potters.
