Pulis not letting strikers go

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has insisted he will be keeping all his players as he needs a lot of attacking options for the busy schedule ahead.

Tony Pulis: Needs all his strikers at his disposal during busy period

Strikers Kenwyne Jones and Cameron Jerome have been linked with loan moves elsewhere after struggling to establish themselves as regular starters at the Britannia Stadium this season.

However, Pulis maintains neither player will be going anywhere as he wants a full squad available to him.

He admits the fitness of Michael Owen has been a factor in his decision not to let players go, with the former Manchester United man working hard to get in peak condition but currently sidelined with a hamstring problem.

Pulis said in The Sun: "I won't be letting anyone go. We have so many games coming up we need all the players we can.

"Michael's fitness is very much at the back of my mind when keeping Cameron and Kenwyne."
