Pulis To Chase Chelsea Legend?

Pulis To Chase Chelsea Legend?

It was being reported yesterday that head coach Tony Pulis had an interest in bringing in soon to be Chelsea free agent John Terry.

With it known that Pulis will be meeting with West Bromwich Albion's owners next week to firm up ideas and plans for the summer, the Birmingham Mail were one of many to pick up on the speculation that when Pulis, chairman John Williams and chief executive Martin Goodman fly out to China to meet Guochuan Lai, the former England international will be one of the names spoken about in hopes of attracting him to The Hawthorns.

It's reported that Bournemouth have already offered 36 year old Terry a contract worth around the £100,000 a week mark, and it's not the first time West Brom have been linked with that kind of wage increase given the speculation surrounding Pulis' interest in Jermaine Defoe.

With all the talk about reducing the average age of the squad and particularly defence though, the Terry link doesn't make much sense on that front and with supposed interest from clubs in China and the MLS, on a money front you'd think those packages would see us shy away anyway.

It must be said though, the Telegraph report on the same references Terry currently earning £50,000 after a pay cut, and that's said to be lower than Nacer Chadli, Jonny Evans and Salomon Rondon who are said to take £75,000 a week each.

The Telegraph are quote Pulis saying.

'We won't know until I come back from China what the budget exactly is. We`ll analyse the season and the way they see the club pushing on and going forward. We will go into detail over a lot of things and it will be nice to see what his views are.'
