Warnock plays down interest in duo

Published Add your comment

Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock has dismissed speculation linking him with strikers Danny Webber and Jon Stead.

Webber is a free agent while Stead has fallen out of favour at struggling Ipswich. But Warnock, who has ruled out signing the pair, has revealed he is stepping up his search for a forward after finding out Stern John will not recover from his dislocated elbow until the end of next month.

He told Your Local Guardian: "I spoke to him (Webber) last week but he rang me for advice more than anything. We want a big guy to go up front really. We can't afford Jon Stead. I don't think we will be doing anything this week but we are still on lookout for a striker with John out until the end of October."
