Stoke make their first signing

Stoke make their first signing

Stoke City have made their first signing of the summer, but it's turned out to be the manager, Tony Pulis, who has been working without a contract since rejoining two years ago.

It appears that Tony came back to the Brit with just a handshake from chairman, Peter Coates. In this day and age of agents who have a legal background and managers that can be hired and fired on a chairman's whim - you've only got to look at recent events at Chelsea and Man City to see what a precarious life a manager has - the news that TP has been working for two years without a contract is quite remarkable. But this just highlights the unusually good relationship that Pulis has with Coates, which has become self-evident during the last season.

TP has now signed a rolling one year contract with the club, which means that he always be entitled to a year's salary if he is sacked and the club will always get compensation should he be poached by another club.

I am sure after a bad start he will soon be getting jeered by the home fans again.
