Sky Sports reports that the 59-year-old had been in talks with the club following the sack of Garry Monk. Pulis, was sacked in November by the Baggies after the club were thrashed 4-0 by Chelsea. “I wanted a challenge – a real challenge – and this reminds me so much of Stoke when I went there with Peter Coates,” Pulis said. “Steve Gibson [the Middlesbrough chairman] is a football man who understands the game. I have great respect for him as a person and an owner. “I really am looking forward to this. The immediate challenge is finding out about the football club and as a team we have to get as many points as can, as quickly as we can. “I wanted to come at this time because we have so many games in a short space of time, and I can assess everything,” he added.
