Stoke Renew Rodallega Interest

Stoke Renew Rodallega Interest


Wigan Athletic and Colombia striker Hugo Rodallega is reportedly once again the focus of interest from Premier League rival Stoke City with several news outlets reporting that Potters boss Tony Pulis is preparing a £9 million bid for last seasons leading goal scorer at the Latics.

Stoke have been linked with Rodallega since January and although they have just signed Kenwyne Jones from Sunderland for a hefty fee it would appear that Pulis requires more fire power for his strike force as he looks to make Stoke an established Premier League side.

Speaking to the press Pulis says: 'We want to get four or five more players in.

'We need goals in our team and we also need strong competition among our strikers if we are to continue improving at this level.'


The Latics are also heavily linked with a move for Stoke striker Tuncay and so some sort of swap deal may well be on the cards, if these moves are to come about though it is likely that if any cash adjustment is needed then that will be heading Wigans way with Tuncay valued at around £4.5 million compared to Rodallegas £9 million valuation.

£9 million? I would pay his bus fare for that kind of money. He is totally over rated, with a first touch like a bag of cement. and a shot which at times is lucky to reach the goalie. Just one question for the Hugo lovers. What has he ever done that any good Conference player couldn't?

Tony Oulis says he wants 4 or 5 more players, I can't see him shelling out £9m then even more for other players, unless all the others are on a free.

The new pitch has been laid, marked and hovered in time for the visit of Oldham Athletic in what could be a very significant League 1 clash.

If results go our way, come 5pm tonight we could find ourselves in second spot in the league table, a position that would set us up nicely for next week's clash with promotion rivals Walsall, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.

The last time I was thinking like this with full on confidence was prior to the Blackpool game in December, what a
