Stoke winger Pennant denies club curfew fine

Jermaine Pennant has denied he has been fined for breaches of club discipline after reports alleged the winger twice broke a curfew and that he had struggled for selection as a result.

On Twitter Pennant yesterday said: "I'm all over Skysports saying I've been fined when it's not true the gaffa [Tony Pulis] is going mad. So to all the Stoke fans and for the record there is no problem with me and TP, I have not been fined."
