Transfer Talk: Pulis denies Beattie move
Wednesday 20 January 2010
Stoke City Manager Tony Pulis has dismissed reports linking James Beattie with a £3m move from the Britannia Stadium. Reports linked the former England international with a move to Wolves, but Pulis says there has been no contact: "I would expect Mick [McCarthy, Wolves manager] to ring me if they were interested, and he hasn't."
Beattie's future with the Potters is uncertain, with the player struggling to find form and having reportedly been involved in an altercation with Pulis after defeat at Arsenal last month. The 31-year-old scored seven goals in 16 games last season after arriving from Sheffield United, but has scored in just one of 20 matches this term.
Everton are the latest Premier League club to join the chase for Leeds striker Jermaine Beckford, while Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos has claimed a move to Celtic would suit him and the club, with the Hoops looking to replace Gary Caldwell following his move to Wigan.
Manchester City will make a bid for out-of-favour Milan midfielder Mathieu Flamini, hoping to bring the player to Eastlands on a six-month loan deal. Sunderland manager Steve Bruce is monitoring Klaas-Jan Huntelaar after the Milan striker admitted he might have to leave to secure regular football.
