Stoke City boss Tony Pulis wants to bring Jermaine Pennant back to England.

The Mirror says Pulis is prepared to take a gamble on Pennant, 27, and offer him an escape route from Real Zaragoza.

Former Liverpool, Arsenal and Birmingham star Pennant has struggled since his move to Zaragoza last July and fallen out with coach Jose Aurelio Gay.

And Pulis is preparing a £1.5m bid to save him from his Spanish nightmare this summer.
