Erik Pieters set to sign?
Dutch left back Erik Pieters could be close to signing for us after apparently having had a tour of Clayton Woods and his agent has been in discussions with the club. We nearly signed him in January but an injury scuppered any deal.
David Bentley could be set to join him on a free transfer after being released by Spurs, this rumour along with Martin Olsson from Blackburn gain more media coverage as both players have worked with Mark Hughes previously. The Sky sources quote has appeared today with regards to Bentley and as a free transfer worth a go, even if he failed to impress at Spurs.
One former Potter on the move is Martin Paterson who joins Huddersfield Town from Burnley. Also it seems Ricardo Fuller won’t be joining the Vale.
