Tony Pulis will not walk away from West Bromwich Albion despite previous reports suggesting that the Baggies manager was toying with his future at the club after a difficult transfer window.
According to Sky Sports, Pulis is not considering his position as head coach and will lead the side as usual for the visit to Bournemouth on 10th September following the international break.
The Hawthorns outfit have added five new faces to their squad which left a number of fans underwhelmed and frustrated by their club’s inactivity in the market having spent the fifth lowest amount in England’s top flight.
Deadline day moves for free agent Hal Robson-Kanu and Allan Nyom from Watford followed the likes of record signing Nacer Chadli, Matt Phillips and Brendan Galloway who joined on loan from Everton, to the club.
A combined spent of £22.5m had led to reports that Pulis had grown tired at his board’s failure to recruit new players with speculation of a rift intensifying following chairman John Williams’ statement on Thursday.
Claiming that the Baggies were close to breaking their record transfer fee for the second time this summer, the club pulled out of the deal for ‘footballing reasons’ after reporting that Pulis was extremely selective in the personnel brought into the changing room.
Despite only spending more than Hull City, Stoke City, Middlesbrough and Burnley in a summer that saw Premier League clubs spent over £1bn, West Brom accumulated the five new signings they set out to achieve at the start of the window.
