Potters could land striker on transfer

John Carew discusses a potential permanent transfer.

By | 24th January 2011

While Stoke fans get used to the sight of John Carew in a Potters kit after completing his loan move from Aston Villa last week, the big striker has revealed that a permanent move to the Britannia could be on the cards. Carew said that if things go well for both parties then summer discussions could lead to a permanent transfer.

“If I’m happy and the club is happy, if I enjoy it and it goes well enough, then we can decide that in the summer,” Carew said. “The important thing now is to make the most of this opportunity. I’m looking forward to the challenge and I am happy to be here.

“Although I had other offers, I saw Stoke as the best team and the strongest team, so this is a great chance for me to join a side fighting in the top half of the table. Tony Pulis has shown great confidence in getting me here so I want to repay that faith.

“He’s a great manager who created a big impression with me, so I am delighted I have been given this opportunity to work with him.”

Aston Villa, meanwhile, have replaced Carew with Darren Bent, who hopes to drag Villa out of the relegation zone and up the table.
