Stoke chairman Coates rubbishes Kitson sale claims

Stoke City chairman Peter Coates has dismissed reports that striker Dave Kitson will be leaving in January.

Kitson has failed to score since joining City for a club record £5.5m from Reading in July and is rumoured to be unsettled at the Britannia Stadium.

But Coates told BBC Radio Stoke: "We don't want to offload him, we think he's a very good player.

"Like all strikers, he needs a goal. Pressures can build but I'm sure he'll get there eventually."
