Pulis targeting same Palace value as he produced at Stoke

Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis is planning to use a similar transfer process as he did at Stoke City in order to keep the south London club in the Premier League.

The Eagles sit 17th on the table at the turn of the year prompting Pulis to step into the transfer market this January to bring in some bargains who will help keep the Selhurst Park outfit aloft, similar to what he has done at Stoke in the past.

"Every club I've been at, I don't think anyone can decry me spending too much and not giving them a return on their money," he said.

"I have always prided myself in that respect and if I bring players in they will be coming in to help us initially stay in the Premier League.

"If they are older players you keep the value by staying in the Premier League or they are young and they actually gain value.

"At Stoke if you look at Ryan Shawcross, Asmir Begovic, Marc Wilson and Steven Nzonzi – they have all maintained Premier League football for Stoke City.

"Their value now compared to what we paid at the time would have gone through the roof – if we could do the same at this football club then I would be doing somersaults.

"I'm hoping and praying that one or two things will drop for us. Both in terms of players who are not in the squad or around the squad, moving them on and letting them play. That might leave us a little room to manoeuvre and bring a few in."
