Tony Pulis has no doubt had a tough time during this transfer period.

Most of his bids for new players are currently falling off. Pep Guardiola’s strong desire to hold on to Fabian Delph have totally cut short West Bromic Albion’s hope of signing the midfielder.

Series of enquiries have been made and questions have been asked concerning the 27-year old Manchester City player. For a while now, Guardiola’s keenness on seeing more of Delph shows that City has no interest in a complete sale, or even a loan of the player to any club. Delph has missed many matches this season due to a groin injury and has been inactive since last August.

Delph who has been a very passionate player in England, combined with his energetic, aggressive and experienced style of play, he has checked many of the midfield boxes for Tony Pulis.

Unfortunately, Tony Pulis and Albion will have to take a move on with the recent disappointment from the current transfer window. They had lost a £18 million bid for Manchester United’s Morgan Schneirderlin, the Frenchman moved to join Everton last week for a fee that is possibly on the rise to £24 million.

Albion star player, Darren Fletcher, has echoed the imminent need for new players and officials in the team. Of all the officials in West Brom, Pulis has got only 14 senior professionals left at the moment. The likes of CallumMcManaman and Craig Gardner left the team some time ago and SaidoBerahino, Jonny Evans and Allan Nyom are currently absent.

The lack of experience in the squad is highlighted by the presence of teenagers within the squad. These three teenagers were from the academy and formed part of the subs at White Hart Lane last Saturday.

Fletcher said: “We definitely need some players in, we need a bit help of there’s no doubt about that.”
