Marlon Harewood’s agent says that Stoke have enquired to Villa about the availability of Marlon Harewood following press links to the former West Ham man. (See earlier article Villa Striker Has No Shortage Of Suitors )

His agent, Phil Sproson said:

‘Marlon has been linked with about four or five clubs but at the moment he’s going nowhere. He’s a Villa player and Martin O’Neill isn’t looking to get him out of the building. That was certainly what came from conversations we had with Villa in January and nothing has changed … unless Villa bring in another top striker. Things might change then.’



Adding, ‘We know Stoke are interested in Marlon, but clubs like Fulham and Rangers are also interested, so it’s a case of watch this space. If Villa were to say Marlon was surplus to requirements, there certainly wouldn’t be a shortage of clubs looking at him.’

Wigan were also linked today.

Expect Stoke manager Tony Pulis to deny making an enquiry any day soon!
