Tony Pulis's extremely relaxed response when asked about new West Brom contract

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

The Baggies head coach has been discussing his future.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis was extremely relaxed in his press conference on Friday afternoon when asked about talks over a new contract at the Hawthorns, according to Sky Sports.

Reports surfaced this week that Pulis will be offered a new deal in summer.

But the 58-year-old says nothing has been agreed and that he'll have a 'nice glass of wine and a bite to eat' before discussing anything. 

The Welshman is quoted as telling reporters on Friday afternoon: "It's the first I've heard of it.

"At the end of the season I'll sit down with Jeremy and we'll talk, we'll talk about the season and talk about the future. That's what I have done for years.

"Let me speak to Jeremy. The important thing is for us to finish the season as strongly as we can. I still have a year left, there's no rush in doing anything else. I would prefer to sit with Jeremy and have a nice glass of wine and a bite to eat."

It looks as though Premier League safety does all the talking when it comes to Pulis's position.

Fans have been unhappy with West Brom's lack of ambition, negative tactics and dour football this season.

But, ultimately, the Baggies are safe. Pulis has ensured that and looks as though he will continue to do so if kept on at the Hawthorns.

West Brom travel to Manchester City on Saturday evening for what should be a tough fixture. However, City's priorities lie in Europe and the Baggies could be able to capitalise.
