Transfer rumour mill in full swing…

Always lots of rumours at this time of year and I give them my own mark out of 5, with 5 a nailed on cert and 1 about as likely as a Big Mama hat trick…

Rumoured ins…

David Bentley now a free transfer signing and been managed by Mark Hughes at Blackburn 4/5

Roque Santa Cruz another freebie and played under Mark Hughes twice before. Not so sure on this as he maybe past his best now 3/5

Junior Houillet (QPR) again worked with Hughes previously and of the rumoured players the most likely to date to sign for us. 4 1/2 /5

Jonjo Shelvey (Liverpool) not the most popular of players! Various Stoke fan sites saying a bid of around £6-7m. 3/5

Altidore former Hull City player who was less than inspiring with them but since done well in Holland. Possibly linked given the USA connection, although does seem to be a Twitter ‘agent’ red herring. 1/5

…and rumoured outs…

Michael Kightly on loan to Notts Forest has been picked up as a story in the local Nottingham press. Unless Hughes plans to use him more can see him off looking for regular first team football 4/5

Jermaine Pennant to Hull City 3/5 Also may be offered a new contract by Stoke!

Kenwyne Jones to Cardiff City – maybe if we sign another striker although Jones may fancy his chances now Pulis has gone 2/5
