Having already secured Middlesbrough pair Tuncay Sanli and Robert Huth, Tony Pulis now about to complete a deal to bring 29 year old Welsh International Danny Collins to the Britannia Stadium. The Stoke City boss is looking to further strengthen his squad before the transfer window and appears to be backed to the hilt financially as he makes an intelligent acquisition from Steve Bruce’s Sunderland.
Adaptable defender Collins, how is as adept at left back and at the centre of defence, has spent five years as a Black Cat and has been named the Fans player of the year for the past two seasons. It is a little surprising that he appears to be on his way out from the Stadium of Light but will surely prove to be a very good investment by the Potters boss.
