Jermaine Pennant determined to prove his point

On loan Wolves midfielder Jermaine Pennant has made clear his desire to show he is able to compete at the top level despite Stoke manager Tony Pulis clearly feeling otherwise.

The 29 year old gave an exclusive interview to the Sunday Mercury after playing his first game for Wolves in which he featured in a single game for longer than double his time all season at Stoke. Whilst stating that “only Pulis knows the answers” as to why he failed to be considered at the Potters, Pennant has turned his attention to Wolves and getting playing time under his belt.

With the player in the latter stages of his contract there is uncertainty surrounding the his future, and Pennant himself acknowledges this, explaining “I’ve only got a few months left on my contract and I don’t know if I’m going to stay (at Stoke), but I’m not going to argue as to why I’m not playing.”

Whilst the player is keen to give his all for Ståle Solbakken’s team he confessed during an interview with BBC WM that he wanted to return to the Premier League, as for “every footballer their aim is to play in the Premier League” and is prepared to do his talking on the pitch whilst being optimistic over what the future holds.
