London - West Brom have added Callum McManaman to their squad in time for the game against Tottenham Hotspur and Pulis said he believed the winger, who signed from Championship side Wigan Athletic, had a "point to prove".

McManaman was one of the stars of the Wigan team who stunned Manchester City in the FA Cup final in 2013, shortly before dropping out of the Premier League.

"We spent a lot of time chasing him and we're pleased," Pulis said.

"He's got good ability and can score goals and we need people who can help us in the final third. He is proven at this level.

"I like having wide players in the team and I think the crowd like individual players who can take players on. We had it with Jermaine Pennant and Matt Etherington at Stoke and Yannick Bolasie and Jason Puncheon at Crystal Palace.

"Callum has something to prove, which is brilliant. He has been out of the Premier League for a couple of years and he is desperate get back into it."

Defender Jonas Olsson has returned to training following an Achilles problem, but will not be available in time to face Spurs.

West Bromwich Albion host League Cup finalists Tottenham Hotspur at The Hawthorns on Saturday at 17:00.
