Tony Pulis confirms West Brom still looking for players, report highlights four positions

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

The Baggies manager is far from finished in the transfer window.

As West Brom continue to push for new signings, Baggies boss Tony Pulis has confirmed to the Birmingham Mail that he is looking to add several new players to his current squad.

The Hawthorns outfit had been suffering somewhat of a frustrating summer for transfers before the arrival of Hull City defender James Chester and Liverpool striker Rickie Lambert in the last few days, with central defence and attack both positions that had been identified as needing strengthening.

But the club have struggled to add another winger to their squad this summer, despite links to a number of players, while a goalkeeping addition has also failed to materialise.

“We need to bring players in,” Pulis is quoted as saying in the Mail. “We’re working really hard.

"The Chairman has been very supportive. The important thing is that we get the right players. Don’t throw mud at the wall and hope that things stick.

"Players have got to have the experience and the quality to push us on.

“I’m not going to say how many (players we need) but it is quite a few.”

Though the Welshman was reluctant to discuss the number of players he wanted, the Mail does go on to state that West Brom are particularly looking to strengthen in four positions still: another striker, a winger, a second centre-back and a goalkeeper.

Whether Pulis can get cover in each of those positions, or more importantly, get good enough cover, will be the former Stoke manager's challenge for the rest of this month.
