Paul Gallagher has rejoined the Potters for the remainder of the season after he agreed a last minute loan deal from Blackburn Rovers.
Hot on the heels of John Eustace's surprise departure comes the news of Paul Gallagher's return to the club.
He was one of the few high spots of Johan Boskamp's short tenure at the Brit after he spent most of the season at Stoke on loan in 2005-06. He ended up as the Potters' top scorer with 14 goals and it had been rumoured last year that he may be on his way for a second spell at the club after Tony Pulis revealed that John Rudge had been signing Gally's praises, but he then opted to go out on loan to Preston instead. That loan period ended at Christmas and Gally obviously preferred a promotion campaign rather than a relegation campaign and will get a good reception back at the Brit on Saturday.
Already in the can:
Salif Diao (free agent)
Danny Pugh - Preston North End (£500k)
Andy Griffin - Derby (£300k)
Leon Cort - Crystal Palace (£1.2m)
Ryan Shawcross - Manchester United (£1m rising to £2m)
Paul Gallagher - Blackburn Rovers (on loan for the rest of the season)
Just the rumour mill for now:
Glenn Whelan - Sheffield Wed. Rumours still abound, but he's still at Hillsborough for now.
Stelios Giannakopoulos - Bolton (£750k?) Has started a couple of games for Bolton recently, so may look to sit tight at the Reebok.
Marlon Harewood - Aston Villa. Martin O'Neill went on record to say that he wanted him to stay at Villa Park
Neil Lennon - Notts Forest. The former Celtic midfielder is said to have Ipswich after him as well.
Robert Earnshaw - Derby. Still at Pride Park.
Junior Agogo - Nottingham Forest. Currently away playing in the African Cup of Nations
Joel Lindpere - Tromso. The Norwegian press are linking us with this Estonian international midfielder
Theo Walcott - Arsenal. Arsene Wenger told the media that he would not loaned to anyone.
and already gone
Peter Sweeney - Leeds United ('nominal fee')
Clint Hill - Crystal Palace. (undisclosed fee)
John Eustace - Watford (£250k)
