Simmo keen for first-team football
Published : 28 May 2010 10:46:00
Stoke goalkeeper Steve Simonsen is not ruling out a permanent move away from the club this summer in a bid to find first-team football. Simonsen, who has played 187 games for the Potters since signing on a free transfer from Everton in July 2004, is third choice behind Thomas Sorensen and Asmir Begovic and spent the final seven weeks of the season on loan at Sheffield United. He was given a new one-year contract by the Potters towards the end of the season and Tony Pulis would prefer to loan rather than sell the 31-year-old. However, Simonsen is ruling out nothing and he told BBC Radio Stoke: "The manager has known me a long time and he knows it would benefit me hugely to be playing regular football. "Whether that comes in the form of a loan move or a permanent move I don't know but I wouldn't rule it out."
