West Brom boss Tony Pulis says he will not be discussing his legal battle with Crystal Palace until the matter is resolved.
The Baggies boss was reportedly ordered to repay Â£3.5million back to the Eagles, who he left on the eve of the 2014-15 season, this week.
Pulis was paid a bonus of a reported Â£2million after he kept Palace in the Premier League at the end of 2013-14.
Pulis had taken over at Selhurst Park with the club in the relegation zone, but after being paid the bonus for keeping them up as 11th-placed finishers, he left 48 hours before the 2014-15 campaign after reported disagreements over player recruitment.
The sum is reported to include a Â£1million fine from the Premier League and the legal costs of both Pulis and Palace.
Palace took the case to an independent mediation tribunal and Pulis has stayed quiet.
“I can’t say anything at the moment,” Pulis said. “The process is still ongoing.
“As soon as it’s over and we’re allowed to speak, then I’ll speak about it.
“It’s an ongoing process so that’s it. I’ve been told not to say anything so it’s lovely to be here to talk about West Bromwich Albion.”
