Pulis and Reid: Stoke's dream team?

Has Tony Pulis found his new assistant in the very experienced shape of Peter Reid?

Reid was at Saturday's draw with Birmingham, sitting alongside the Potters' part-time coach, Gerry Francis, amid reports that he's agreed verbally to take up the number two position at Stoke and it's just a matter of agreeing the contract terms.

Dave Kemp's decision to relinquish the assistant manager's role and take on a scouting job with the Potters had prompted reports of several top names vying for the job among them Paul Jewell, Brian Kidd and Sam Ellis.

The news that Peter Reid is likely to end up in the role will surprise and delight many. It's now four years since he last managed at club level. He spent seven years managing Sunderland from 1995 to 2002, followed by short spells at Leeds and Coventry. For the last year he's been head coach for the Thai national team, but there had been reports of a possible return to the Black Cats as Director of Football.

If it's all confirmed as expected during this week, it'll be a twist of fate as Sunderland are the Potters' next visitors to the Brit on Saturday.
