Pulis happy to wait over transfers

Published Add your comment

Stoke boss Tony Pulis is prepared to bide his time in the transfer market if necessary.

The Potters, who are in Croatia ahead of Thursday night's Europa League third qualifying round second leg against Hajduk Split, have only recruited former Tottenham centre-back Jonathan Woodgate so far this summer.

"We'll do our business with the clubs and people might be surprised who we do eventually end up with," Pulis said.

"We will improve the squad before the window closes. But we've always done our business later in the transfer window rather than earlier.

"We have to make sure that we do our business at the right price - that is something that we have always maintained and something that we will always try to do.

"I think the closer you get to deadline day, there are better deals to be done with certain players."
