Transfer news: West Brom coach Tony Pulis says they are still keen to sign Callum McManaman
West Brom head coach Tony Pulis says he has not given up hope of signing Wigan winger Callum McManaman.
And Pulis also says he will be quite happy if record signing Brown Ideye is still at the club when the window closes, despite his struggles in the top flight so far.
The Baggies have had a second bid of £4m for McManaman, who is also now a target for Hull City, rejected by the Latics after an initial offer was turned down.
However, Pulis said: “It is going on, along with two or three others. We are exploring the situation to see if we can bring him in.
"We need to decide if it's a good deal for us or not and it has to be right for everyone. The clubs have to agree but it's got to be right for the player as well.”
It has also been suggested that Albion may be looking to offload Ideye, who has scored just one Premier League goal since his £10m summer transfer from Dynamo Kiev.
Pulis said: “At this present moment, Brownie is still here. If he's still here when the window closes that's fine, because he's been very good behind the scenes.
"He's trained well and his attitude has been first class. He's not without talent. The problem is we've needed him to score a goal and he hasn't scored a goal."
Silvestre Varela has joined Parma, after the Baggies ended his loan from Porto, and Sebastian Blanco and Georgios Samaras are both set to depart the club as well.
But Pulis is not sure if he will be able to replace all of them and said: “We will see. If that's the case (that the trio are not all replaced) I'll have to get on with it and that's the way I've always done it.
"I'll be hoping to bring players in and the club is hoping we can bring players in, so we will be working very hard over the next 10 days.
"The chairman will ask me if it's value for money or not but I don't get involved in the wages."
