Stoke boss Tony Pulis, whilst keen on signing loanee Jermaine Pennant, will only do so if the financial cost is within the Potters criteria.
Pulis told Sky Sports News: "The deal has to be within the structure of this football club. If it's not then we'll move on.
"We want to sign him. He's done brilliantly and he's a good lad, but if we can't afford the deal we'll move on."
