Whelan picked up two yellow cards during Thursday's match against Newcastle.

Both came in the first half, which started the cavalcade of difficulties for Stoke, who saw Marc Wilson sent off just three minutes after Whelan was tossed. It comes at a very difficult time for Stoke, who will play Tottenham this Sunday.

Whelan was sent off after receiving two yellow cards in Stoke's preseason friendly against Orlando City, The Sun reports.

Whelan was originally booked for physical play, but received another yellow after going nose-to-nose with an Orlando player as they disputed the incident. The Potters were forced to finish the match with 10 men, winning 1-0 nonetheless. Whelan was reportedly victim to a card-happy referee and Stoke manager Tony Pulis hopes that the sending off will be the extent of Whelan's punishment, saying, "Hopefully nothing will come of Glennís red card. Itís a friendly and Iíd be disappointed if any further action was taken."

Whelan scored his first of the season in Saturday's 3-1 win over a pitiful Blackburn side.

Whelan has found a niche with Stoke. He does a terrific job providing toughness for a scrappy Stoke side that finds themselves building on a terrific 2010-11 season.

Whelan injured his calf slightly while on international duty with the Republic of Ireland. It is a minor injury and he is hoping that he will be fine to face West Ham this weekend.

Since the injury seems minor,so there is no major concern right now, but keep checking back. He should be fine to go.

Whelan admits he didn't have to think twice about signing. He came over from Sheffield Wednesday during the January transfer window and didn't waste any time cementing his spot with Stoke during the promotion winning campaign.
