Tony Pulis has agreed to a contract extension at West Brom which will keep him as the club’s Head Coach until the end of the 2019 season.

Pulls’ current deal was set to expire at the end of the upcoming season and after talks with Chairman John Williams, he decided to extend it by a further year.

Speaking to the official West Brom website, Pulis said he was delighted to extend his contract:

I’m delighted to extend my contract because it continues the stability within the club which is essential for its progress. I’ve said all along that we are in a building phase which requires a step by step process. I think we’ve seen an improvement all across the club in recent seasons and we must continue that in what is such a tough, tough league. Having spoken to John at great length over the summer, we know this club has a direction it needs to follow and we are determined to do that.

West Brom begin their 2017/18 season on Saturday afternoon with a home game against Bournemouth and Pulis will be hoping to celebrate the news of his new contract with three points.
