Stoke boss Pulis made personal check on Caen striker Youssef Al-Arabi

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis was in France on the weekend checking potential signings.

The Mirror says Pulis made a flying visit to check out French side Caen's Morocco international striker Youssef Al-Arabi.

Pulis wanted to see the 24-year-old in action after glowing reports - and he will be returning at the start of next season as he looks for a new forward.

Al-Arabi helped the Normandy-based club to survive but is available to move. Pulis did not see enough of him to make an instant decision, but he is now on the Potters watch list.
