JURGEN Klopp would only say he admired Joe Allen as a 'wonderful player' after Stoke City made a £13m bid to take him away from Liverpool. Allen appears to be heading for the Anfield exit in a search for more regular playing time and it is Stoke who have made the first serious move. Swansea, who had an £8m bid rejected last month, are still thought to be lurking in hope they can lure the 26-year-old back to Wales. READ MORE: Jack Butland hopes Stoke City form will look after...

MARK Hughes has told Burnley to forget all about trying to sign Charlie Adam this summer. The Clarets have expressed an interest in acquiring Adam's experience to replace the midfield know how of Joey Barton. The initial link appears to be Burnley general manager Matt Williams, who performed a similar role at Blackpool when Adam was there. But Hughes insists the 30 year-old Scot is set to remain a Stoke player for a fifth season. "I think there was a little bit of interest in Charlie,...
