Crystal Palace boss Tony Pulis is due a stunning cash bonus after keeping the club in the Premier League.

The Mirror says Pulis will collect a massive survival bonus worth over £2million from Crystal Palace.

He originally told the Eagles he wanted a £3m survival bonus and £55,000-a-week to take the job. The Londoners baulked at those demands, but came back to him baseball cap in hand after a fruitless month-long search for Ian Holloway’s successor.

Eagles chairman Steve Parish then agreed to a massive survival bonus worth over £2m to get his man - plus a hefty seven-figure salary. Pulis, who has never been relegated as a boss, will feel he is worth every penny after taking 37 points from 25 games in charge to revitalise the club.
