Harewood agent denies Stoke talk

Marlon Harewood
Harewood joined Aston Villa from West Ham in July 2007

Marlon Harewood's agent has said Stoke City have not contacted Aston Villa about a possible move for the striker.

Press reports have linked the 29-year-old with a 2m move from Villa Park to the Britannia Stadium.

But Phil Sproson told BBC Radio Stoke: "To my knowledge nothing has been said to Villa about Stoke getting Marlon.

"That's all just paper talk at the moment but there has been conversations with other clubs," said former Port Vale and Birmingham defender Sproson.

Harewood has endured limited first-team chances at Villa this season. And Sproson said the former West Ham United man would be interested in a move if it meant regular football.

"I wouldn't say Marlon had a point to prove but he's certainly anxious to play football again," he said.

"If Stoke were serious about signing Marlon then he would be serious about talking to them."
