Potters line up Ridgewell offer

Pulis is looking for another centre-half after allowing Abdoulaye

Faye to leave the club – and the Welshman sees Ridgewell as the

perfect candidate. The 26-year-old can also play at left-back,

another area Pulis is looking to strengthen in this summer, and

Birmingham are unlikely to stand in his way should he want a move

back to the Premier League. Ridgewell has made 156 appearances for

Blues since a £2million move from city rivals Aston Villa in

the summer of 2007. Stoke are also keen on Ridgewell’s St Andrew’s

team-mate Cameron Jerome, while Tuesday’s Daily Mirror claims Craig

Gardner is also a target. The Potters had a £4million bid

rejected for Jerome, 24, in January.
