Reports had initially broken earlier today suggesting that Pulis was locked in crisis talks with chairman Steve Parish over his future at the club, with the two seemingly at loggerheads over the club’s transfer policy and failure to secure Pulis’ favoured targets, including Gylfi Sigurdsson and Steven Caulker.
With Martin Kelly having been announced as a new signing from Liverpool earlier today, however, it seems as though Pulis’ departure is an abrupt one, with less than 48 hours until the Eagles face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on the opening day of the new Premier League season.
