A few notable names from  the past have been released by their current clubs including Jonathan Woodgate leaving the newly promoted Middlesboro. Popular defender Clint Hill has been released by QPR after six years at the club. If Hill was a little younger (he’s noe 37), I am sure Pulis would be interested in signing him. At the same club Karl Henry looks set to be offered a new deal.

Danny Pugh is looking to extend his current stay at Bury. Carl Dickinson is currently out of contract at Port Vale and has been offered a new, lower waged deal.

Former striker Ricardo Fuller announced his retirement from football on May 16 after a short spell at Oldham.

The ever readable 4231 Stoke blog has a list of possible British born players Mark Hughes and his management  may be interested in. They include Nathan Redmond, John Ruddy and Michael Carrick (what an excellent free signing he’d be).

Woodgate joins Boro; Ness delayed and Cameron next in?

Jonathan Woodgate has joined Middlesboro on a three year contract after his contract with Stoke expired. Good luck to him but three years???

Jamie Ness is expected at pre-season training on Thursday as Stoke have taken the transfer to FIFA to rule on.

Geoff Cameron’s, possible move looks still to be on and could be concluded next week.

We have inquired about Blackburn’s Martin Olsson who would be a cracking signing, especially at the rumoured £3m price tag.

Kenwyne Jones looks set to join West Ham an ideal Big Sam forward if ever there was one!

Ness in, Woodgate out?

Jamie Ness has agreed a four year contract with Stoke, subject to international clearance. He joins from Rangers on a free as Rangers are no more and have come back as newco for now. Only 21 and has good reviews from Rangers fans. Question is will Pulis use him in the squad this season or possibly loan him out for a few months? Either way welcome to Stoke and he looks a great prospect.

Meanwhile, possible rumours that Jonathan Woodgate may not sign the one year contract he has been offered. Carlo Nash has also been offered a one year contract but according to his Twitter updates is looking for another club.

No movement on Matthew Upson joining Southampton and hopefully we can keep him, as he performed well each time he was called upon last season.

US defender Geoff Cameron may join the team on their US tour, although again no real movement on his one.

Strange that Fuller has not been snapped up yet, although Ipswich Town are interested.
