Stoke City boss Tony Pulis insists he's staying.

After meeting owner Peter Coates on Tuesday for lunch, Pulis insists no word was uttered of a potential early exit.

"We sat there for three or four hours chatting away about everything, and he never mentioned anything about whether I was leaving or not," said Pulis.

"If I was going to walk away then I would have told him by now, and I certainly didn’t mention anything about walking away.

"This football club has been absolutely fantastic to me. The Coates family are wonderful, wonderful people to work for.

"My respect for them goes a lot further than just closing a door and walking away. People who know me know I’m not somebody who just walks off into the sunset."
