Imps boss Chris Sutton has captured the signature of 25-year-old midfielder Anthony Pulis on a month-long loan deal from Southampton.
Pulis, son of Stoke boss Tony, joins the Imps on an initial one month loan deal from the Saints where he has failed to establish a first-team place.
The midfielder started his professional career under his father at Portsmouth in 2003 before moving on to Stoke in 2004, and played at several clubs on loan during his spell at the Britannia Stadium including Grimsby and Bristol Rovers.
Imps boss Sutton said: “He’s got a good football brain and can play a number of positions which is important considering the size of our squad. We’ve got one or two injuries so he’ll have a fair crack of the whip and we’ll see what happens.”
Pulis is Sutton’s second signing in as many weeks as he follows defender Adam Watts in to Sincil Bank who joined from Fulham last week. The City boss has not ruled out bringing in any more new faces in the near future.
“I’m just looking for players who I think can come in and improve the team. We are looking to add players if they can move us forward.”
Pulis will go straight into the Imps squad for Saturday’s trip to Macclesfield Town.Tweet
