Cape Town - West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis has called on the clubs' new Chinese owners to provide transfer funds to revamp his ageing squad.

Pulis feels the Baggies are starting to stagnate with the current crop of players and, in order to compete in this seasons Premier League, investment needs to take place before the end of the transfer window.

West Brom's Chinese owners led by Guochuan Lai and new chairman John Williams will be mulling over how much money will be made available to the former Stoke City boss, who oversaw a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"The club has had, and still has, a lot of players who have been here for a long time," he said after the game.

"They've been fantastic players, fantastic servants, but they need competition, they need people who can play in that team and want to be in that team. That's what this club needs.

"I've been here now 22 months. It's been one of the things I've said - the club has almost stagnated, and it really needs to get on its front foot.

"It's the only club in the West Midlands this year that's in the Premier League, fantastic support, and the supporters and everybody around the place - we need a little bit of impetus.

"We're trying to do business, we need to do business, and we'll go from there. Hopefully we'll get it in the next two weeks. It's a big two weeks for me and the football club."
