No Kovac deal - Pulis

19 August 2010 03:00
Stoke have ended their interest in signing West Ham midfielder Radoslav Kovac. The Potters were keen on a swoop for the Czech Republic international as the Irons look to cut their wage bill, but a move failed to materialise. "We got close to a deal for Kovac last week but West Ham pulled him back and wanted him to stay, so that one is over with," said Stoke manager Tony Pulis.
