Tony Pulis explains what West Brom can do for Abou Diaby

West Bromwich Albion are interested in signing former Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby.

West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis has told the club’s official website that he is ready to give Abou Diaby a contract.

Pulis has revealed that the former Arsenal midfielder underwent a medical on Friday, and that a deal has been put on the table.

The 57-year-old believes that the Baggies would be able to make sure that Diaby features for 30 Premier League games next season.

“He is a top player and I mean he is a top, top player,” Pulis told West Brom’s official website.

“We've had a look and we think there are things he can do to improve his chances of playing 30 Premier League games and we're confident we can help him do that.

“Whether he accepts that and the ethos of the football club we'll wait and see."

Should Abou Diaby accept West Bromwich Albion’s offer?

Diaby, who was released by North London outfit Arsenal earlier this summer, has suffered with serious injuries over the past few years.

The 29-year-old is a very good defensive midfielder - and if he remains fit, then he is certainly going to be an asset for West Brom.

There is a certain degree of risk involved in signing the Frenchman, but it seems that the Baggies are willing to take that.

Diaby knows the Premier League inside out, and it would make sense if he decides to accept West Brom’s offer and kickstart his career.
