Stoke City boss Tony Pulis denies he's seeking to move on Charlie Adam.

Pulis is considering recalling him for today's lunchtime clash at Fulham.

He said: "There are not really any reasons for him not playing. It's just the team are playing well.

"Whether I change it at all, I'm not sure but I've got options. It's just picking what the right team is to win the game.

"Worrying about who is on the bench or who is coming on never crosses my mind. He's had, without question, a difficult period with his father passing away. We'll look after him, there's no problems here.

"Charlie's a bubbly character and good around the place. We'll concentrate on the team and not individuals."
