Pennant to remain at Stoke

Stoke winger Jermaine Pennant has played down reports that he will be leaving the Britannia Stadium this month, reports BBC Sport. The 28-year-old former Liverpool player has been linked with a move away during the current transfer window, but admits to being somewhat perplexed as to why the rumours have arisen.

Speaking to BBC Radio Stoke, Pennant said: “I don’t want to go anywhere. I’ve not asked to leave and I’m not sure why that’s been brought up. I’ve got another year and a half left on my contract and I’ll be here until the end of it.

Pennant had been absent from the first team for over a month before reappearing during the 2-2 draw with Wigan on Saturday, but moved to dispel suggestions that his exile was due to a falling out with manager Tony Pulis, continuing: “There’s no problems between me and Tony. He’s had a squad that’s been winning in the last few games and you don’t want to change a winning team. He’s the manager and I’m not one to complain if the team’s winning. It’s all about the team.
