Tony Pulis is reportedly holding out for a move to the Premier League with either Southampton or West Ham, report The Sun (via Gazette Live).
Are the Southampton board stupid enough to turn to Pulis?
The ex-Stoke City boss allegedly turned down the chance to take over at Cardiff City after the Bluebirds sacked Neil Warnock last week, as he is not interested in working for a Championship club.
Pulis’ last role was at Middlesbrough but it was far from successful. The 61-year-old failed to achieve promotion during his two-season stint in the north east, and was relieved of his duties at the end of last season after the club failed to finish in the play-off places.
However, the Saints have confirmed that the Austrian’s job is safe and that he will not be replaced, making Pulis’ decision to wait for a move to the club seem a little pointless.
Here’s how some Southampton fans reacted to the news that Pulis was ‘keeping an eye’ on the current situation at St Mary’s:

God help us! The grass isn’t always greener so let’s stick by RH, especially on game day!
