The Potters continue the hunt for new players with the news that the Coventry City captain, Elliott Ward is the latest to be added to our shopping list.

The list of past and present transfer suspects this season are far to large to list here – and that’s just the ones we know about. It’s safe to say that getting new players into the Brit has hardly been the most successful activity at Stoke this season, even though the Chairman has reiterated that the money is there should the manager actually get someone he wants to sign on the dotted line.

Apparently, Pulis tried to sign Ward just before his £1m move from West Ham to Coventry last year and now feels that the time may be right in the light of Coventry’s current financial difficulties. If he does agree to sign, he will join on loan until the January transfer window opens.

Spurs and England U21 international, Wayne Routledge is another player that keeps being linked to the Potters, but if a deal is forthcoming he is only likely to be loaned out by the London club after hardly featuring in Martin Jol’s plans so far this season
