Stoke striker set for loan move

Cameron Jerome, Stoke City

Stoke City boss Tony Pulis is prepared to let Cameron Jerome join Championship club Blackburn on loan.

However, the Potters boss insists that the move does not signal the end for the 26-year-old at the Britannia Stadium.

Since the departure of Steve Kean at Blackburn, Erik Black is in charge of the Ewood Park club and is keen to strengthen his attacking options.

“Blackburn have enquired about Cameron and we will see what happens in the next couple of days,” Pulis told the Stoke Sentinel.

“It would be a three-month loan with a recall available after 28 days if it happens.”

Since Michael Owen joined Stoke at the end of August, Jerome has fallen to fifth in the pecking order of strikers at the club and has yet to start a Premier League game this season.

“If it comes off, it would be a good one because Cameron is the kind of player that needs game time,” Pulis added.

“It’s not far away and they are a decent Championship side.”

Although some believe this is the end for the striker, Pulis remains adamant that the door is always open, as long a she gets some playing time under his belt.

“He would be the first to say he needs to play.”

One striker that Pulis insists is not going anywhere is Kenwyne Jones despite reports linking him with a loan move away to Leicester.

Jones will start on the bench on Saturday against Sunderland, the club he joined the Potters from for £8 million for a club record fee two years ago.

Despite Glenn Whelan returning to full training following injury, Dean Whitehead is set to keep his place in the centre of midfield.
