Palacios to fight for Stoke future

Midfielder Wilson Palacios insists he still has a future at the Britannia Stadium despite transfer rumours, according to The Sentinel.

The 29-year-old Honduras international has not attracted any bids in the current transfer window, although it is thought that Stoke would be prepared to let him leave. Potters manager Mark Hughes has already made four signings this summer, and is said to be trying to sell players to free up space and funds for more fresh blood.

Palacios has not had the greatest success since joining Stoke from Tottenham in 2011. Illness and injury have blighted his time in Staffordshire, and to date he has managed just 14 Premier League starts for the Potters.

Uncompromising Palacios also did not distinguish himself in Brazil at the World Cup, being sent off before half time in Honduras’ first game against France after picking up two yellow cards. He returned to the side for the 3-0 defeat to Switzerland, as the Hondurans crashed out of the tournament with just one goal and no points from their group stage games.

Speaking of his disappointment, Palacios said: “At the moment I am hurt because we did not have a good World Cup. Everyone who watched the three games will see we did wrong.”

But he confirmed his attention is now turning back to improving his domestic fortunes. "I have one more year with Stoke and my only focus is to be more involved with the first team." he said.
