Strachan set to snap up Kitson

Strachan set to snap up Kitson

Stoke striker Dave Kitson is set to be shipped out for another loan move away with Middlesbrough keen to sort a deal out. Kitson has been used only sparingly this season despite opening his goal scoring account for the Potters back in August.

But with the return to form of James Beattie and Ricardo Fuller and the return from injury of Mama Sidibe has left Kitson barely making it on to the bench in recent weeks.

Earlier on in the season it looked as if things had turned around for the £5.5 mil signing as he netted his first ever goal for the club from 30 yards against Leyton Orient. A well taken volley against Sunderland and a sublime finish against Bolton looked to have kick started his Potters career but he has since struggled to get in the team.

The Mirror reports a deal, which will see Kitson move to the Riverside, will go ahead next week and he will stay there until January, when both Middlesbrough and Stoke will decide if Dave should stay at the Brit or leave permanently.

Why can't Pulis reward acheivement? Beattie has been injured and still doesn't look at his best but has managed to keep Kitson out of the team when he has looked like scoring when given a decent run out. Seems like poor man management; can't see Kitson wanting to perform for us anymore. Don't even get me started on Tuncay!

I feel sorry for Dave, he has a good start and then cant get in the team. What more can he do? Any one else see Tuncay going the same way?
