Tony Pulis signs one-year contract extension with West Bromwich Albion


Tony Pulis’s previous deal was due to expire next summer, which led to a host of speculation surrounding his future, but a fresh deal that will run until the summer of 2018 has now been agreed.


The experienced manager, who took charge of West Brom in January 2015, has led the Baggies to 13th and 14th-place finishes in the Premier League in the last two campaigns.

Pulis said: “This is a time of great change at Albion and when that happens you need continuity. As I have said from the outset, I want to build things here and play my part in improving the club. You cannot do these things overnight but I do believe, step by step, we are making advances.

“I think the bulk of our fans understand the process we embarked upon under the shadow of relegation less than two years ago. We have a club which can aspire to be an established top ten member of the football league everyone in the world wants to be part of. I want to continue to front that challenge.”

West Brom currently sit 13th in the Premier League table ahead of Saturday’s home game with league leaders Manchester City.
