Jermaine Pennant is confident that Stoke City manager Tony Pulis will get the best out of him at the Britannia Stadium.
The winger sealed a transfer deadline day switch to the Potters from Real Zaragoza, joining the Premier League club on loan.
Pennant is delighted to be at Stoke and has revealed that Pulis being manager of the club played a key role in him opting to return to England.
He told Stoke City Player: "My agent always told me Stoke were always interested and tried to sign me last season. But it was literally on the last day.
"I was in Spain watching Sky Sports News and I saw Eidur (Gudjohnsen) had flown into Stoke and I was thinking 'that's a good signing', but I didn't know at that time I was on my way there too.
"Then I got the call from my agent and it was a very attractive move and my agent told me Tony Pulis will definitely get the best out of me."
