Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis and chairman Steve Parish are locked in talks aimed at ending a dispute related to the club’s transfer policy, report the Daily Mail, a disagreement that could lead to Pulis quitting as manager at Selhurst Park.
The report suggests that Pulis, who performed miracles in dragging Palace from the foot of the table to comfortable Premier League safety, has been left frustrated by the Eagles’ failure to secure his key summer targets, including midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, who joined Swansea City, centre back Steven Caulker, who went to QPR, and striker Michu, who moved on loan to Serie A outfit Napoli.
Pulis has added the £1.5m signing of Liverpool defender Martin Kelly today, joining Brede Hangeland, Frazier Campbell and Chris Kettings as summer signings in South London, but Pulis was clearly hoping for more eye-catching captures.
Another issue that the report suggests has driven a wedge between Pulis and Parish is the chairman’s desire to bring winger Wilfried Zaha back to the club from Manchester United, despite the Welshman holding reservations about the player who was integral to earning the Eagles promotion to the Premier League under Ian Holloway.
