Stoke City boss Tony Pulis is holding talks with his scouts.
Former assistant manager Dave Kemp, now scouring North and South America from his California base, will be among those chipping into the meeting via a long-distance phone call.
"We will discuss what's out there and what's not," Pulis told The Sentinel. "Dave is working hard making lots and lots of contacts and watching lots of games.
"He's found it interesting. He's been to Boca Juniors to watch how they work. He's been to Argentina and Brazil, but also the outlying areas as well."
