Pulis: No offers for Tuncay yet

The forward has struggled to establish himself in the Stoke side this season and has started only three games in the Premier League. He started Saturday's FA Cup tie against Cardiff City and scored in the 1-1 draw, but has been tipped for a move away from the Britannia Stadium. Blackburn, West Ham and Wigan have been linked with bids for Tuncay, but Pulis has not fielded offers for any of his players. "Don't believe all you read in the papers," said Pulis in The Sentinel. "We have had no offers for Tunny or anybody else." Pulis also praised Tuncay's goal against Cardiff which earned Stoke a replay against the Championship side next week. He added: "Tunny scored a really good goal in the first half, but he missed a couple of good chances in the second half. "He had one just after half-time - he is so good in those situations where he has a touch and finishes them. But he has good ability and his goal was a good one."
