West Brom extend coach Pulis contract until 2018

London, Oct 29 (IANS) English football club West Bromwich Albion has announced the renewal of coach Tony Pulis’ contract for one more season, until June 30, 2018.

“Tony Pulis has agreed a further one-year extension to his contract which commits him to The Hawthorns until the summer of 2018,” a club statement said on Friday.

The Welsh coach came to West Brom in January 2015 and in two seasons he has led the team to a comfortable place where it stays under the spotlight, finishing the English Premier League (EPL) in 13th and 14th position.

The club was sold last September to a Chinese investor group led by businessman Guochuan Lai, who has shown his confidence in Pulis by offering him a new contract, reports Efe.

“This is a time of great change at Albion and when that happens you need continuity,” Pulis said in a statement to the website of the ‘Baggies’.

“I want to build things here and play my part in improving the Club. You cannot do these things overnight but I do believe, step by step, we are making advances,” added the coach.
