Tony Pulis eyes move for Marc Wilson

Published Add your comment

Tony Pulis has his eyes on another transfer target in the form of Stoke City's Marc Wilson, The Daily Star suggests.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has already rebuked rumours of any of his best players leaving the club this summer, however, saying: "I'm not trying to take key elements of the squad out of the mix and give them to others".

26 year-old Wilson has gone on to make over 100 appearances for Stoke since being signed by Pulis from Portsmouth in 2010.

Pulis is said to be a keen admirer of the Irish player who can play anywhere along the backline and in midfield.

Wilson was a regular starter at Stoke under Pulis who he highly-rated and lavished praise on quite frequently.

Defensive priority

Defensive options remain a high priority for Puils following the release of defenders
Jonathan Parr, Dean Moxey and Danny Gabbidon over the summer. 

Wilson is under contract at Stoke until 2016 but a bid could tempt Hughes to reconsider as he looks to reduce this season's large wage bill.

A move would see Wilson link up with new signing Brede Hangeland and Republic of Ireland teammate Damien Delaney.
