Stability the key for Pulis

Tony Pulis is keen to continue the progress West Brom have made in the last few seasons after agreeing a contract extension with the Baggies.

The 59-year-old, who was appointed head coach at The Hawthorns in January 2015, will remain with the club until the end of the 2018/19 campaign.

The former Bournemouth, Gillingham, Bristol City, Portsmouth, Stoke City, Plymouth Argyle and Crystal Palace boss had previously been contracted to Albion until the end of this season.

He said: "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.

"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."

West Brom finished in the top half of the Premier League table last season and are 15/8 to repeat that feat in 2017/18 while Jay Rodriguez is 6/5 to be their top scorer this term and Salomon Rondon 11/10.
