Premier League: Tony Pulis wants to push Crystal Palace on as he plans talks with chairman

Tony Pulis is to hold talks with Steve Parish about how they plan to take the club forward after praising the Crystal Palace chairman for supporting him in the last transfer window.

It took Pulis and Parish time to learn how to work together after the manager was appointed in November with Palace in a perilous position.

But Pulis says their relationship has gone from strength to strength and they can now look to the future after a remarkable upturn in form secured Premier League survival.

Palace eventually brought in Joe Ledley, Scott Dann and Wayne Hennessey in January, while loanee Jason Puncheon joined permanently and Tom Ince signed a temporary deal.

"My relationship with the chairman was a bit tetchy at the beginning," Pulis said in The Sun.

"I was getting used to Steve and he was getting used to me.

"But since that period it's been fantastic. Just look at the players we bought in the last transfer window.

"I wanted those players and Steve went and got them for us. There was no messing about. He's been fantastic for us."

Pulis is now keen to strengthen his squad again this summer after insisting that Palace cannot afford to become complacent after such a strong finish to the season.

Having never suffered relegation in his managerial career and previously enjoying success in establishing Stoke City as a Premier League club, Pulis knows there is still a lot of work to do at Selhurst Park.

He added: "Now it's about sitting down with Steve and the board and talking about the way they see us going forward.

"I've done it at Stoke - we got promoted and improved year after year until they became an established Premier League club who should never be in danger of being relegated.

"But if you start patting yourself on the back in football someone will kick you up the backside.

"So it's very important we keep our feet on the ground."
