Stoke City manager Tony Pulis is in no rush to sign a new contract at the Britannia Stadium. The Potters boss has defied the odds this season to keep the club in the Premier League but is happy to carry on with a one-year rolling contract. "I haven't sat down with (chairman) Peter (Coates) to talk fully about next season, never mind talk about any three-year contract," Pulis told The Sentinel. "I'm on a rolling contract as things stand and I'm quite happy with that arrangement. It suits me and seems to suit Peter that way. "I have the best chairman in the world, so I don't have to be looking over my shoulder at my contract situation all the time. "There's been a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes in terms of planning for the future and obviously we can step that up a bit now that we know we're definitely staying in the Premier League. "We've had a lot of players recommended to us so, over the next four or five weeks, I'll be trying to get out there to see if they're worth following up. "By staying up in the top league, I'm hoping it will help us to bring in that touch of extra quality we want, whether it be from England or abroad."
