Stoke City boss Tony Pulis has played down the prospect of offering terms to Sporting Kansas City striker Teal Bunbury.

Bunbury, who scored for the reserves in their 3-1 defeat by Wigan in a practice game last week, has enjoyed a brief trial spell at Stoke after jetting over from Kansas City.

"He's done smashing, mixed in well and got a goal the other day," Pulis acknowledged.

"Whether he's what we want for the next step, we'll have to see.

"But he's a nice kid and, like most American sports people, is very dedicated. His attitude during his time here has been first-class."
