NEW WEST BROM boss Tony Pulis is planning on raiding his old club Stoke in an attempt to sign Ireland international Jonathan Walters, according to reports.

Walters has established himself as a regular presence in the Potters side under Mark Hughes, however according to the Sun on Sunday, Pulis believes he can persuade the 31-year-old attacker to join the Baggies.

The former Ipswich star, whose contract expires next summer, has made over 150 appearances for Stoke since joining the club in 2010.

Meanwhile, in other Irish-player-related transfer news, the Daily Mirror report that Tottenham have identified James McCarthy as an alternative target should their pursuit of Morgan Schneiderlin fail.

The midfielder was hugely impressive for Everton last season, and the club have struggled in his absence through injury for much of the current campaign.
