Tony Pulis: Set to be offered West Brom contract extension

Tony Pulis is reportedly tracking Hull City’s Jake Livermore and Andrew Robertson as he looks to make West Brom more exciting.

Albion reached 40 points with a 0-0 draw at Sunderland last weekend, but they failed manage a single shot on target for the seventh time this season, the most of any side in a single campaign since 2003-04.

Pulis will have only 12 months remaining on his contract at The Hawthorns come the summer, but the Daily Telegraph reports negotiations over an extension will begin in the next couple of weeks.

With his future secure, Pulis is apparently planning a significant overhaul as he looks to bring down the average age of his squad with pacey, attacking signings.

Saido Berahino is expected to leave, with Tottenham Hotspur and Stoke City both interested, while Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe will leave on free transfers at the end of their contracts, it is said.

Pulis watched Livermore and Robertson in action for Hull at Derby on Tuesday night and wants to strengthen up front and out wide to make his team more exciting. Albion are set to appoint a new technical director to assist Pulis in the transfer market, the Telegraph adds.
