Boss rules out move for Stead

Last updated : 09 September 2009 By Palace Reporter
Palace are without Stern John until the end of October as he recovers from a dislocated elbow. Warnock wants a big man upfront but it won't be Stead.

The boss admitted speaking to Danny Webber: "I spoke to him (Webber) last week but he rang me for advice more than anything. We want a big guy up front really.

"We can't afford Jon Stead. I don't think we will be doing anything this week but we are still on the lookout for a striker, with Stern John out until the end of October."
