Jermaine Pennant has revealed Stoke City manager Tony Pulis wants the former England midfielder to secure a loan move away from the Britannia Stadium.

The 29-year-old has not made a top-flight appearance for the Potters since starting the goalless draw with Arsenal in their opening home game of the Premier League season.

Pennant, who was signed from Real Zaragoza in 2010, is now looking for a temporary switch to a Championship side or a foreign club in a bid to attain regular first-team football.

“To all the Stokies I have some news for you all. I did say I’ll always be honest…,” Pennant posted on his Twitter page.

“The gaffer said I can go out on loan to get some games! I was as shocked as much as some of you guys will be and I can promise we have not fell out.

“I can’t go to a Premier League club, I can only go abroad or to the Championship and I’m only agreeing until January so be gone for two months or so.

“Stokies I’ll keep you updated. I’m not going to lie I’m gutted like but I’ve got to play!!”
