This summer will provide an 'expensive market'

20th June 2011 - Alma Shera

Stoke football manager Tony Pulis has claimed that the high transfer fees being paid by top teams will have a residual effect across the division.

His comments come after Liverpool bought Jordan Henderson from Sunderland for over £15 million, while Manchester United spent in excess of the same amount for Blackburn defender Phil Jones.

Speaking to BBC Radio Stoke, Pulis said: "Sunderland have sold big, Blackburn have sold big and there will be other clubs who will have a little bit of money in their pockets to go out and buy players."

He also remarked that he anticipates a very difficult market this summer, yet one where there will be "a lot of movement".

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard praised the signing of Henderson, telling the club's website that he wants the ex-Sunderland player to replace him in the future.

Henderson will have to fight for his place at his new club, as they already have the services of Gerrard, Lucas Leiva and Raul Meireles, among others.
