Charlton manager Phil Parkinson has confirmed striker Andy Gray has snubbed a move to Stoke.

Gray, who joined the Addicks from Burnley in last January's transfer window, has been left out of the starting line-up recently having netted just once in 10 games.

Parkinson told the club's official website: "There was an inquiry from Stoke about Andy but he turned it down."

He added: "It came out of the blue but Andy wasn't keen on going up there. They're a big club - a Premier League club - but Andy wants to play and it looked like he would be back-up to all the strikers they've got up there and it didn't appeal to him.

"It's flattering for Andy that a Premier League side inquired about him but he's in my thoughts for Saturday and I'm looking forward to him putting in a very good performance."
