Tony Pulis: I might try and sign a Louis Saha for Stoke City
TONY Pulis hasn't given up hope of adding a free agent to his squad between now and the end of the season.
Pulis has left a place open in his designated 25-man Premier League squad in case he fancies a free signing.
Former Manchester United and Everton striker Louis Saha has already signed for Lazio since the January transfer window closed after earlier being released by Sunderland.
"If there's somebody out there, we will look at it," said Pulis today, "and if we can do it, we certainly will."

He revealed that young midfielder Matthew Lund will leave the club at the end of the season when he is out of contract and that is why he has been omitted from the 25-man squad.
"We didn't want to get Matty in there because we want to get him a club," Pulis explained.
"We want him to play some league football before he's out of contract because we are not offering him one next year.
"We try to treat them like human beings, not pieces of meat."
Pulis also disclosed that new signing Brek Shea was technically available to play against Reading on Saturday after securing his Visa back home in America.
But the 22 year-old faces a wait before being considered because of his fitness levels after a long period out with a foot injury.
