Maurice Edu has left Stoke today to join Bursapor on loan for the rest of the season. US international Edu joined us in the summer as a free transfer from Rangers but has only made one subs appearance.
Swansea have had a £3m bid for Kenwyne Jones turned down as they seem set to lose Danny Graham to Sunderland (a player we have been rumoured to be interested in).
No firm links to incoming players to Stoke although with Edu of the books we have at least one free space in the 25 man squad.
Jermaine Pennant is back at the club after a loan spell at Wolves. Tony Pulis says he will sit down with Pennant to discuss what happens next. Big Mama is also due back off loan at Sheff Wed, although he may go back on loan with them for the rest of the season.
Andy Wilkinson is a doubt for Saturday’s game at Swansea, otherwise no new injury concerns although the weather may have a say!
