Stoke boss Tony Pulis has denied reports claiming the Potters had made a club record £9million for West Ham striker Carlton Cole. Reports on Saturday claimed the Potters had made an approach to the Hammers for the 26 year old who has long been linked with a move to the Britannia Stadium.
However, speaking to BBC Radio Stoke, Pulis said: "There's no truth in it whatsoever.
"They've got to fill their papers and fill their television programmes.
"I'll do all of my business with the clubs that I'm dealing with."
