Tony Pulis to learn transfer budget over Friday dinner

first_img The Baggies boss is meeting the owner on Friday to discuss their January assault and knows Peace will have the final say. Pulis has been linked with Tottenham’s Andros Townsend but is not interested in Arsenal’s Mathieu Debuchy, despite reports, with Debuchy a target for Aston Villa. Tony Pulis will thrash out West Brom’s transfer plans over dinner with chairman Jeremy Peace. The head coach wants to add to his squad, with Albion 12th in the Barclays Premier League, but admitted Peace will not break the bank. “I’m having dinner with Jeremy on Friday and we can sit down and have a quick chat about the way he sees it, the way I see it, and then we can go from there,” Pulis told the Express & Star. “Things are bubbling behind the scenes but nothing’s come to the surface. Jeremy will decide. “I had my views in the summer, Jeremy’s got his views. The chairman runs the football club when it comes to the finances and it’s his decision in the end what to do with it. “He’s run the football club in a very astute manner over the past 10 years. The football club has got a fantastic structure in place, it’s debt-free, they make money most years. “You have to give him enormous amounts of credit for that.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
