Stoke City are in talks with Greece striker Angelos Charisteas.

The Sentinel says Stoke boss Tony Pulis met with the 28-year-old striker's agents at Stoke's Austrian hotel a couple of hours after Charisteas had scored FC Nuremberg's winner against City on Tuesday evening.

But early indications suggest both he and Nuremberg will price themselves out of a move after asking for figures Stoke are unwilling to meet.
