Stoke City have been forced back into the market for a loan striker after Ricardo Fuller picked up his tenth booking of the season.

Just as it seemed that Pompey striker, David Nugent would be arriving at the Brit, Portsmouth’s progression into the FA Cup semi-finals ended that plan as the player was deemed essential backup.

TP had said that he’d ideally like to see two strikers arrive to consolidate the push for promotion and although he has already got Jay Bothroyd for the next month, he sees the Wolves striker as cover for Mamady Sidibe.

With just a week to go until the loan window finally closes for the season and Fulham’s David Healy appears to be one player on Pulis’ radar.

Healy joined the likes of Stoke’s Richard Cresswell in making his escape from Leeds last summer after they dropped into League 1 and although he has made 12 starts, he has always remained on the fringes of the first team, who themselves are looking at relegation from Premier League at the moment.
