Stoke boss Pulis tightlipped over deal for Tottenham midfielder Palacios
Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has revealed Palacios is having a medical with Stoke, but indicated Crouch was staying at White Hart Lane.
Pulis said: "I've been told there is money available, that there is a pot of money, if I can find the right players.
"There is money there and I'm just hoping and praying we can get players in who will help us again.
"But the wage structure won't be broken. The basic wage at our club won't change."
