Pulis: We could help Diaby

25 July 2015

Ex-Arsenal man underwent Albion medical on Friday

TONY Pulis believes Albion's sports science staff are confident they could improve Abou Diaby's chances of playing '30 Premier League games' if he opted to move to The Hawthorns.

The Baggies head coach confirmed the former Arsenal man had undergone a medical at Albion's training ground on Friday.

Diaby has suffered with injuries in the past, but Pulis believes Albion's staff could keep the midfielder fit for the entirity of the Barclays Premier League campaign.

Pulis said: "Diaby came in, he had his medical yesterday. We've made him an offer and we shall see. 

"The big thing with Abou is getting him fit and having the confidence from the medical team to do that.

"He is a top player and I mean he is a top, top player. We've had a look and we think there are things he can do to improve his chances of playing 30 Premier League games and we're confident we can help him do that. Whether he accepts that and the ethos of the football club we'll wait and see."

Pulis watched his side beat Swindon 4-1 with the only negative being Gareth McAuley's calf strain - an injury he hopes won't keep him sidelined for too long.

Jonas Olsson was rested, while Craig Dawson missed the game through a minor thigh injury.
