EXCLUSIVE: Upson already unhappy at Stoke

Matt Upson is considering his future at Stoke after just SIX months.
The defender, who has 21 England caps, joined the Potters on a free transfer in August after his contract expired at relegated West Ham.
But Upson has made just five Premier League starts for Tony Pulis, and has seen his hopes of making England's Euro 2012 squad plummet as a result.
The 32-year-old, who has not even made the bench for Stoke’s last two league matches, is now mulling over his options.
Upson was one of five players brought in during the last transfer window, along with Cameron Jerome, Peter Crouch, Wilson Palacios and Jonathan Woodgate
Stoke chairman Peter Coates has ruled out any signings between now and Tuesday night's transfer deadline, saying: “We have a quite a large squad, and feel we are well served with cover.”
Pulis, however, is not ruling anything out.
“I think," he said, "there is always that little bit of room to do some business, but it has to be the right bit of business.”
