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 3/1 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.
