West Brom news: Tony Pulis hopes to hold talks with Jeremy Peace about extending Baggies stay

6 May

West Brom boss Tony Pulis has said he wants to stay with the Baggies.

The head coach has a year left on his deal and will hold talks with chairman Jeremy Peace at the end of the season, with fresh terms on the agenda.

He has guided them to safety this season, with the Baggies in 14th in the Barclays Premier League, and they go to Bournemouth on Saturday.

Pulis signed a two-and-a-half-year deal when he replaced Alan Irvine in January 2015 and hinted he is ready to extend his deal.

He said: “Yeah of course, 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’s no problems for me in any shape, ways or form.

“There’s lots of improvement that has to take place but it takes time, it’s a good football club.”

Nick Hammond also joined last week from Reading as technical director, replacing Terry Burton who left last June, and Pulis believes his appointment is key to the Baggies’ long-term plans.

“He’s got a very important role to play. He’s the club’s man. I’m just subservient to this football club,” Pulis said.

“I’m manager here for maybe another year or two, or maybe just a month or two weeks. He’s working for the football club.

“The club is more important than any individual. Nick will cover things he’s been used to working with and dealing with.”
