West Brom boss Pulis happy takeover complete

West Brom boss Tony Pulis has welcomed the club's new owners.

Pulis believes it is “pleasing for everyone" now that Guochuan Lai's £175million takeover of Albion has finally been completed.

“You should ask the chairman and the new owner how pleased they are to get the deal done," he said.

“It's been going on for quite a while so they'll be pleased it's all sorted and done and dusted.

“The way it drifted, you get involved in it without a question of a doubt so it's pleasing for everyone.

“We now know it's gone through and we can move on from here.

“Obviously the Chinese now own the football club, they are the major shareholders. It will be interesting to see how it works."
