West Brom boss Tony Pulis agrees contract extension

The Welshman's previous deal at The Hawthorns was set to expire next summer

The 59-year-old Welshman, who took over from Alan Irvine in January 2015, could now go on to become the club's longest-serving manager in the modern era.

Pulis is joined on the bench this year by new assistant manager and former Hawthorns boss Gary Megson.

Pulis agreed terms to extend his stay with the club until 2019 on Friday, and it was back to business 24 hours later as West Brom continued the theme of the previous campaign by displaying trademark defensive steel coupled with set-piece prowess.

"We are a smaller, tighter squad then we were at this stage last season but I think the quality is higher and that could be a key difference".
