West Brom boss Tony Pulis signs contract extension until 2019


Coach Tony Pulis signed a one-year extension of his contract with West Bromwich Albion and is set to remain with the Baggies until 2019, the English Premier League (EPL) club said.

- Bournemouth have lost all three of their opening-day fixtures in the Premier League, losing 1-0 to Tim Sherwood's Aston Villa in 2015, Jose Mourinho's Manchester United 3-1 past year and to Pulis's West Brom here.

Since Pulis took over the reigns two and half years ago, the Baggies have firmly consolidated their status as a mid-table side, a far cry from their relegation battles of the past.

Speaking on the club's website, he said: "I'm delighted to extend my contract because it continues the stability within the club which is essential for its progress". "John (Williams, chairman) is working tirelessly to get those deals over the line".

Pulis also pointed to the "improvement all across the club in recent seasons", which he stated as a necessity, in what he called, "such a tough, tough league".

"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".

Pulis said: "We've got five targets and I've got full confidence we can bring in the players we need".

"As for the season ahead, we of course want to improve our Premier League challenge and do everything we can to make a strong challenge in at least one of the major cup competitions".
