Pulis said: "The situation is with the directors and it's a case of whether we can afford a deal and whether the kid wants to come."

Pulis is also hoping to strengthen his squad further as he surveys another couple of Premiership options before the January transfer window closes.

Stoke's desperation for new faces further intensified as the defeat left them without a point in five league games and without a goal in six.

"I told him (Hulse) if we could get a couple of forwards and a couple of wide men we could compete with anyone," added Pulis.
