Stoke City boss Tony Pulis isn't acting like a man winding down his career.

The Sentinel says Pulis flew to Spain after Sunday's home defeat by Spurs to watch the La Liga fixture between Real Sociedad and Granada.

Sociedad's only familiar face is the former Arsenal forward Carlos Vela, while 11-goal striker Imanol Agirretxe, who is six foot tall and 26 years old, is another likely to attract his attention.
