Stoke City boss Tony Pulis is eager to buy in January.

Pulis will now consider strengthening during the January transfer window to ensure a strong finish.

He said: "We would like to do some business but we have to wheel and deal as well. We have to get a few out.

"If we can do that we will try to get a couple in. I think the squad needs a little bit of fresh blood but we have to generate it. We can't go out and spend the money.

"If we get room and space and the players are available, then we will do it."
