Stoke City: Tony Pulis coy about Kenwyne Jones's future
TONY Pulis is playing his cards close to his chest about Kenwyne Jones's future at Stoke City.
The striker is wanted by Swansea but Stoke have rejected a £3m bid from the Welsh club for the in-form hit man.
Speaking at this afternoon's press conference, Pulis said: "If there's going to be anything done in this country with another football club, we'll do our business with the clubs. If we sell Kenwyne, I'll speak to you about it. If we don't sell Kenwyne, I'll speak to you about it. "
Meanwhile, Maurice Edu is poised to join Turkish side Bursaspor.

Pulis confirmed Stoke are prepared to let the United States international join the Turkish club.
He said: "If the deal is done and agreed we might loan him until the end of the season to get him some games. He hasn't got any games here and it has been disappointing for Maurice not to play. He needs to play games to maintain his chance of playing for his country.
"We have had offers in England as well so he has one or two options. Having bought him, but him not getting in the team, we can monitor him now for the next three or four months."
Meanwhile the Stoke boss has confirmed that winger Jermaine Pennant is back training with Stoke after returning from his loan spell with Wolves before his deal was due to expire this weekend.
Pennant won't be picked for Saturday's squad at Swansea, but Pulis isn't ruling him out for the longer term.
He said: "He has come back early. Wolves have sent him back so he is one of our players again. I will speak to Jermaine because I haven't had chance yet to sit down with him and have a good conversation and find out about how things have gone at Wolves. Then we'll take it from there. He will be treated the same as all the other lads at the club."
