Hill knee surgery shock for Stoke
Stoke defender Clint Hill could be out of action for up to nine months after being told he requires knee surgery.

The 26-year-old, who suffered cruciate ligament damage at Plymouth in April, had hoped rest would heal the problem.

But Hill will now undergo an operation when he returns from his honeymoon next month and he is set to miss at least the first half of next season.

Meanwhile, boss Tony Pulis is keen to sign Southampton striker Kenwyne Jones on a permanent basis.

Jones had a successful loan spell at the Britannia Stadium, but fellow loan players Michael Ricketts and Chris Clarke will not be returning to Stoke.
