Report: West Brom boss to hold talks regarding new deal; Pulis claims he's very happy at the club

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

Tony Pulis has managed to keep West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League once again, but progress will be vital next season.

Reports are emanating that Tony Pulis is set to sign a new contract at West Bromwich Albion in the summer.

The Daily Star understands that Pulis, whose current deal expires next year, will sit down with Baggies chairman Jeremy Peace to discuss his future as soon as the current season has finished.

Also, in his press conference, Pulis spoke about his intent to commit his long term future to the club, as reported by Sky Sports:

"I'll speak to the chairman as soon as the season finishes. We've got two weeks to go, two important games, and then we'll have dinner and sit down and we'll talk about things. I should imagine we'll be okay. I like the football club, it's a good football club, there are no problems for me in any shape, ways or form."

The former Stoke City boss also went on to say how he is perfectly comfortable with the arrival of Nick Hammond as technical director:

"He's got a very important role to play. He's the club's man. I'm just subservient to this football club. The club is more important than any individual. Nick will cover things he's been used to working with and dealing with."

Pulis arrived at the Hawthorns in January 2015, and he successfully met his remit of keeping the Baggies in the division. The Midlands outfit haven't really shown any signs of progression this year, however, and their performances have left their fanbase undecided as to whether or not the Welshman is the right man to take the club forward.

The talks that are due to be held between Pulis and the chairman in the upcoming weeks will surely revolve around their plans to move the club on to the next level.

West Brom head to Bournemouth tomorrow in a dead rubber of a match, with only personal pride at stake for both clubs.
