Stoke plan £6m bid for Cardiff star

Pulis has cash to spend in January and is ready to smash Stoke’s transfer record.

He said: “The chairman has been very supportive and we’re trying to find players we need that can do us a job.

“If the deal is right for the club, the money is there for me.

“The chairman knows I’m not a dope and will not bring in stupid players. He will listen to options and is a good football man.”
