Stoke search for keeper
Stoke City are on the look-out for a new goalkeeper ahead of their game at Bournemouth on Saturday.

The Second Division promotion hopefuls need cover for first-choice Neil Cutler after ex-England Youth international keeper Boaz Myhill was recalled by Aston Villa just a week into his month's loan.


We are looking to bring someone in this week, but the fact is at the moment loan keeper's are a bit thin on the ground.
John Rudge

Stoke's usual number two Gavin Ward is still sidelined following a knee injury and City do not want to leave themselves exposed at a crucial stage of the season.

"We can't wait for Gavin's return because we've got a lot of games coming up in the next two weeks," director of football John Rudge told Stoke's official website.

"We need cover as well as genuine competition for the goalkeeper's jersey,"

"We are looking to bring someone in this week, but the fact is at the moment loan keeper's are a bit thin on the ground.

"There are not that many around and we are not the only club looking."

Stoke had turned to former England Youth keeper Myhill after Michael Ingham had ended his loan spell at the Britannia Stadium by returning to Sunderland.
