Stoke have no intentions of selling striker Jerome

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis says he has no plans to sell Cameron Jerome in the summer.

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis says he has no plans to sell Cameron Jerome in the summer.

The 26-year old has failed to become a regular in the Potters first team since joining from Birmingham City in August 2011 prompting speculation that he could soon be on his way out at the Britannia Stadium.

But Pulis insists that the club is keen to keep Jerome because of his match-winning abilities late in games.

"Cameron has been exceptional. His attitude has been first class,” Pulis told the Daily Express.

"We didn't have any enquiries [in January] and I wouldn't have accepted it anyway because I think he's an important part of the group and the team. He can score all sorts of goals, he has pace and power.

"When the game opens up in the last quarter of an hour, he's a great player to bring off the bench. He's a game changer without a doubt.

"But he's still moaning and groaning because he reckons he should be playing all the time. I'd be really disappointed if he wasn't moaning and groaning."
