Carew signs and Fuller stays
Its great news all round if you`re a Stoke fan. John Carew has decided to join Stoke on loan for the remainder of the season, and perhaps more importantly Ricardo Fuller seems to be staying put, for now.
Firstly, big John Carew has signed and is available for tomorrows match with Fulham. Carew passed a medical at Stoke yesterday but then held talks with West Brom, and passed a medical there as well. However, he chose us and may play tomorrow. The 31 year-olds Villa contract runs out at the end of the season, so if all goes well there is the option to sign him for free!
Secondly, the club has reportedly told Sky Sports that no bid has been received for Ricardo Fuller, although it was widely claimed that Sunderland had a £3million bid accepted. Fuller has been training all day with his Stoke and for now at least appears to be going nowhere. One of the most popular players in the squad, Fuller is the kind of player you couldn`t imagine leaving and you do question whether it would be in his best interests to move away.
