Stoke City could sign four more players, reveals Kemp

Tony Pulis' right-hand man claims that "between zero and four" men could arrive at the Britannia Stadium on deadline day but refuses to discuss a possible deal for Charlie Adam

Stoke City assistant manager, Dave Kemp, has confirmed the club could sign up to four more players before the close of the transfer window.

The club have been active on previous deadline days, signing Peter Crouch and Wilson Palacios a year ago, and Kemp revealed that the Potters could make more last-ditch deals.

When asked of a possible move for Liverpool's Charlie Adam, Kemp told reporters: "There is no guarantee, but it could be any number between zero and four - let's put it that way."

"I don't really want to discuss particular players, and he is not our player.

"He is a very good player, but so are lots of other people out there. If he becomes our player, or any other player comes, we can speak about them then."

The Potters have been chasing Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone, and despite hitting a hitch over the midfielder's medical, Kemp is not ruling out a deal for the 25-year-old.

"I don't think there is that much progress with that at the moment," he added. "But that is not to say something won't happen between now and tomorrow night."

Maurice Edu is another set to arrive in the Potteries, after being granted a work permit.

Kemp continued: "He has been granted the work permit, but as usual, there are other bits of paper that have to be stamped and marked.

"He has another appointment tomorrow, I think with the Border Agency just to clarify that. But he has been granted the work permit, so hopefully we are very close to getting that over the line."
