Head coach Tony Pulis has said he’s relaxed when it comes to potential talks on extending his existing West Bromwich Albion contract.

With 12 months still to run on his existing deal, Pulis explained to the Birmingham Mail that if nothing comes to fruition this summer, he’s not that fussed as he’ll still be in position next season anyway, so he was more concerned with getting plans sorted when it came to budgets and the like ready for the coming campaign.

‘I don`t think it makes any difference. For a long period of my career I worked with just a one-year rolling contract. It makes no difference. The biggest thing is trying to improve the football club and stabilise what we`re trying to achieve. To do that you have to get the finances and backing and improve. That`s what we`ll be trying to do and there`s a lot more money coming into the Premier League next year so that means there`ll be a lot more competition. I`ve got a year left, it`s not as though I`m walking away and packing it in. It`s not as though the chairman has been ringing me, I`ve been ringing him and we`ve been arguing over anything. There`s a year left, if nothing happens I`ll be here.’

It’s reported the 58 year old will meet with owner Jeremy Peace in the next fortnight or so for talks about a deal extension, and talk from him as the season came to a close was definitely about having a future at the club – but I guess with Albion remaining up for sale that also figures in future plans.
