After victory over West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City boss Tony Pulis was tightlipped over his transfer plans.

Pulis refused to confirm whether Stoke were close to signing Tottenham pair Wilson Palacios and Peter Crouch but insists the club wage structure will not be broken.

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."
