Tony Pulis has told Crystal Palace he wants £30million to take the club to the next level after completing his survival miracle.

The Welshman was on the end of a 2-0 reverse against Manchester City on Sunday, but the Eagles are safe in mid-table after a remarkable turnaround following his November appointment.

And now he wants the South London club to spend if they are to establish themselves as a Premier League side.

Pulis is on the look out for a centre-forward and remains frustrated over the failure to sign Connor Wickham in January. The 56-year-old remains a huge fan of the Sunderland striker, but is aware he will now have to pay far more than the £5million asking price that senior Palace figures baulked at during the winter - even if the Black Cats go down.

The Eagles boss also wants to upgrade his midfield by bringing in Stoke giant Steven N’Zonzi, but has told the club hierarchy that he has no plans to change from the high-tempo, counter-attacking playing style with which Palace have had so much success.

Pulis has also promised a “clean slate” for his players next season, in a move that is likely to see club legend Julian Speroni replaced by Wayne Hennessey.

The Argentine is out of contract this summer and yet to discuss a renewal, but will be informed that he is no longer guaranteed the number one jersey despite 10 years at Selhurst Park.

Leicester City and Sunderland are reportedly interested.
