Pulis keen to bring in more

11 August 2015

Rondon aiming to be fit for Watford trip

ALBION still have more to do in the transfer market - that was the message from Tony Pulis after last night's defeat to Manchester City.

Speaking to rights' holders and media, Pulis gave his thoughts on the game and beyond.

He also gave an update on the fitness of new record signing Salomon Rondon.

On transfers, Pulis said: 
"We need to strengthen the axis of the team. We will try to do that during the coming period. But as I've said before they have to be the right player.
"Any player we bring in has to strengthen the squad."

On Rondon, he added:
"He's a little bit short fitness wise so we will see where he is before our next game against Watford.
"Salomon a good age and we hope he'll be a good investment for the club. He has a good goalscoring record and he's powerful, quick so it's a great addition and hopefully it'll be a good deal."

Commenting on the City defeat, the head coach continued:
"Sometimes as a manager you hold your hand up. I wanted to play Saido and Rickie - which goes against everything I usually do against bigger teams, where I fill the midfield and go strong. What we did in truth was allowed Silva too much room in first half and he was able to dominate the game. 
"The thought of playing the two up front in the first home game was to try and be positive. So it's my responsibility, my fault. We played into their hands in the first half."
