Stoke appoint Nathan Jones as new manager

He had previously worked as coach and then assistant manager at Brighton.

Luton have made an impressive start in League One this season and now occupy the second automatic promotion spot.

Stoke, 14th in the Championship after winning just eight of their 26 league games under Rowett, were reported to have been turned down by Slavisa Jokanovic when they approached the former Fulham boss for talks.

Jones, 45, who grew up in a small coal mining community in the Rhondda Valleys, arrives at the Bet365 Stadium as one of the brightest managerial prospects from the lower leagues, having powered Luton against the odds into second-place in League One.
