Fulop bid rejected and pants Man City striker linked…
West Ham defender DANNY GABBIDON is a target for Tony Pulis, according to the website TEAMtalk.com. It claims the Stoke City manager is ready to make a £2m bid. Meanwhile Man City’s out of contract striker EMILE IMPENZA has been linked to us but frankly he seems pants and LEE McCULLOCH would be a safer bet.
Our £1.7m bid for FULOP has been rejected by Sunderland although Stoke are expected to up their bid.
Hopefully this week Stoke will confirm their first signing(s) with ANTHONY GARDNER, RANDOLPH AUSTIN and FULOP all rumoured to be close to signing. Pompey’s DAVID NUGENT is getting a few mentions on the Oatcake fan message board. He has never really shone at Pompey but did well at Preston and could join our Preston Ex-Pats club which currently features Fuller, Pugh and Cresswell!
LEWIS BUXTON has been linked with a move away from Stoke with Notts Forest and Derby supposedly interested.
One ex-Stokie on the move is JAMES O’CONNOR who has signed on a free with Sheff Wed after leaving Burnley. Joining Burnley is former striker MARTIN PATERSON from Scunthorpe.
