Stoke City manager Tony Pulis insists the club will not be held to ransom in their bid to land Jermaine Pennant on a permanent basis.
The 27-year-old winger has made an impressive start to life at the Britannia Stadium following his loan move from Spanish side Real Zaragoza.
Pulis is keen to make the deal a permanent one, but there are reports that Zaragoza will be looking for a hefty fee to part with the former Liverpool and Birmingham City man.
And Pulis told Sky Sports News: “The deal has to be within the structure of this football club. If it’s not then we’ll move on.
“We want to sign him. He’s done brilliantly and he’s a good lad, but if we can’t afford the deal we’ll move on.
“I’ve never dealt with a Spanish club before. I’ve spoken to the manager there.”
