Cameron Jerome is eager to repay the faith of manager Tony Pulis and start repaying his £4 million transfer fee with goals.

The former Birmingham City striker joined Stoke City on deadline day alongside Spurs forward Peter Crouch, with the pair joining Kenwyne Jones and Jonathan Walters as the attacking threat at the Britannia Stadium.

24-year-old Jerome is is well aware that competition for places is fierce, but an impressive display off the bench in the defeat at Swansea could lead to a start after the international break, and he's eager to add to his goal tally after scoring his only goal thus far on debut against Dynamo Kiev.

"With the people we have here supplying ammunition from the wings, I think double figures is definitely achievable for all of the strikers at the club," said Jerome.

"With the strikers we have here, I think everyone would be disappointed if at least a couple of us didn't hit double figures.


"People label Stoke as long-ball merchants, but I think there is so much more to us than that.

"Since I have been here, I have been genuinely surprised by the quality of players we have."

Tony Pulis' side boast genuine wide threats in the shape of Matthew Etherington and Jermaine Pennant, whilst Wilson Palacios, Glenn Whelan and Salif Diao are all international midfielders.
