Crystal Palace are being linked with Stoke City utility Ryan Shotton.

The Sentinel says Palace boss Tony Pulis has remained tight-lipped over the possibility of inquiring about Shotton following his return to Stoke from a loan spell at Wigan Athletic.

The 25-year-old utility player made the last of his 69 appearances for Stoke under Pulis in the final game of last season before being loaned to Wigan for a further 14 league and cup games.
