Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has lifted the lid on his meeting with Harry Kewell last week.
He said: "Harry turned up and I think there were crossed wires with his agent and with ourselves.
"We thought he wanted to have a place to train and work, and we were more than obliged to look after him.
"I think Harry thought there was something more concrete at the end of it. It was crossed wires but we have sorted that out."
