Tony Pulis calls for more signings despite beating Bournemouth 1-0

Pulis extends contract with West Brom

Head coach Pulis has signed a one-year extension on his current deal, keeping him contracted at The Hawthorns until the summer of 2019.

The 59-year-old Welshman, who took over from Alan Irvine in January 2015, could now go on to become the club's longest-serving manager in the modern era.

"I am disappointed. It is unlike us to have so much possession and to not create chances - that is the most disappointing thing", he said.

Bournemouth struggled throughout and West Brom and Tony Pulis were the deserved winners on opening day.

"We are a smaller, tighter squad then we were at this stage last season but I think the quality is higher and that could be a key difference".

Pulis says he is "delighted" to commit to the club following talks with chairman John Williams.

"We can never underestimate just how important it is to keep our place in a league that is now the most famous and the most followed in the world", he added.


"It's important we push the club and try to keep pushing it forwards, and part of that is that we maintain the development of our young players within the academy".

"Neither can we underestimate how hard that is".

"We need more players in - good players".

"We can take enormous confidence from this".

"But I do believe in the future of these young players and that's an important part of the development of the club, especially with the incredible rises we are seeing in prices within the transfer market".

Finishing 10th last season, West Brom hovered between mid-table and as high as 7th spot, with an unlikely shot at European football on the agenda at one point in the campaign.
