Pulis pondering position over transfer frustrations
Pulis is reportedly concerned with the amount of money that is being put into the clubs youth academy rather than money for transfers.
Chairman Peter Coates is focused on developing home grown talent through the youth system, which has denied the club any key transfers over the course of the season.
They missed out on signing Moussa Sissoko, who moved to Newcastle United and has greatly impressed at the club.
The most the club has spent on players is £4million on both midfielder Charlie Adam and goalkeeper Jack Butland.
It is thought that Potters’ fans are frustrated with the lack of transfer activity from their club and have called for a change after the goalless draw against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
He responded to this by saying: “There always comes a time when it’s right for everyone but I don’t think it’s that at the moment.”
Pulis has spent five season at the club, guiding them to promotion to the Premier League, as well as the 2011 FA Cup final and European Football for the first time in nearly 40 years.
But the latter part of Stoke’s season has taken a turn for the worst, with only one win in their last eleven games.
And the departure of director of football John Rudge at the end of the season in a major shake-up of the club could see Pulis depart as he weighs up his options.
