Afellay no longer welcome at Stoke
'Sky Sources' claim that Lambert feels the player is a bad influence on the team, and he does not want him around at this crucial point in the season.
His attitude has been poor with regard to training, and he has a disruptive influence.
Afellay has been informed that he will not be allowed near the team's training complex, despite the fact that he still has a year remaining on his contract.
Stoke sit 19th in the Premier League, and face Arsenal on Sunday.
