Jermaine Pennant is hoping his loan move to Stoke will earn him a permanent transfer to the Barclays Premier League.
The 27-year-old is on loan from Real Zaragoza, the club he joined from Liverpool in the summer of 2009.
"I've missed the Premier League," he told Sky Sports News. "I've also missed having a team meet and understanding the instructions I'm getting."
He added: "I'm just going to play the best I can and see what happens.
