Cresswell set for talks

Stoke striker Richard Cresswell wants talks with boss Tony Pulis over his future after rejecting moves away from the club on transfer deadline day.

The 31-year-old, whose contract expires at the end of the season, has revealed he rejected moves to Watford and another Championship outfit on Tuesday as he aims to fight for his place at the Britannia Stadium.

But with the loan window opening on Tuesday it is still possible Cresswell could depart, and the former Preston man is eager to know where he stands.

He told The Sentinel: "A couple of clubs came in on deadline day, but at that moment it wasn't right for me.

"The gaffer here is happy for me to stay and, if I do, I am more than happy to keep working hard to be available for as long as I am here. My contract is up at the end of the season, but if I do stay this season it goes without saying I will give 100%.

"I've already been involved in most games this season, but I probably need to have a long chat with the gaffer now to see what's what."
