Tony Pulis personally scouts Ben Gibson ahead of a bid

  Tony Pulis personally scouts Ben Gibson ahead of a bid As Gareth McAuley continues to get up there in years and with Jonas Olsson having been let go of earlier in the season, West Brom are short of a bit of cover in defence. Tony Pulis favours big, physical centre-backs who can slot in and play the same system and he will undoubtedly enter the market for one in the summer. Pulis was in attendance at Stamford Bridge on Monday night as Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 3-0, confirming Boro’s relegation back to the Championship just a year after they secured a return to the top flight. While the Baggies also face the west London side this weekend, Pulis had his eyes on Ben Gibson on a scouting mission ahead of a possible summer move for the defender, according to the Birmingham Mail. The 24-year-old is Middlesbrough’s captain and his father, Steve Gibson, owns the football club, so it would be an incredibly tough ask to prise him away from the Riverside. Valued at £25m, Gibson was recently drafted into the England squad and is tipped to be a future international regular and has been linked with a move to Chelsea and West Ham.

Middlesbrough defender Ben Gibson says he hasn't decided if he will leave this summer, but insists he wants to carry on playing in the Premier League.

The 24-year-old has been linked with Liverpool and Chelsea following confirmation of the club's relegation to the Championship after one season back in the top flight.

Gibson has been at Middlesbrough since he was a schoolboy, but after winning his first England call-up in March he has not hidden his desire to play at the top level.

"I'm obviously contracted to the football club," he told Sky Sports.

"It's been a hard year for everyone. What I would say is that since I came here at 10 years old, I've given my lot for the football club.

"I think every player in the world wants to play in the Premier League, everyone wants to play at the top level. I'm no different to that.

"What I would say is that no decision has been made regarding my future as of yet."

Gibson has played in every Premier League game for Middlesbrough and helped the side to keep 11 clean sheets during his first season in the top flight.

And he says he has proved to himself that he has what it takes to play in the division.

"I feel like I've done well personally," he added.

"I pride myself on our team keeping clean sheets and trying to lead a back line, being in control of it and then trying to play out from the back, helping the team going forward when I can.

"We feel we have done that well, but trying to be a perfectionist, which I am, there are times we should have kept more clean sheets. Particularly lately we have conceded more goals than we should have.

"I think personally I've been encouraged by my performances. Until you step foot over the white line in a new division, you don't know if you can play at that level.

"I believe in myself that I'm capable of playing at this level and I've enjoyed testing myself against what are some of the best players in the world."

Steve Agnew has been in caretaker charge of Middlesbrough since the sacking of Aitor Karanka in March.

And despite overseeing their relegation, Gibson insists he is the right man to lead the team on a full-time basis in the Championship next year.

"I think he's been brilliant," he added.

"It might not look like that from the outside, but there's more to it than what people see.

"We haven't had that bounce in terms of results, but Steve has had a difficult job. His hands have been tied behind his back to be honest.

"He has contained a very difficult situation very well in my opinion. Steve is a good man, he's honest, very hard working and is a fantastic coach.

"He's a leader and I certainly believe that he'll be the right man for the job,"

West Brom hopeful of deal to sign Ben Gibson .
West Brom will be in the market for a new defender or two after allowing Jonas Olsson to leave earlier in the season and both Marc Wilson and Brendan Galloway returning to their parent clubs following loan spells at the Hawthorns. While securing a left-back remains the top priority, adding another centre-back remains close to the top of Tony Pulis’ summer wishlist and the Mirror claim that the Baggies are keen on striking a deal to sign Ben Gibson from Middlesbrough. The 24-year-old is the son of owner and chairman, Steve Gibson, and has stood out for Boro in a poor season at the Riverside, earning a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s last England squad back in March. Valued at around £20m, Gibson has admitted he hopes to play in the Premier League and is eager to further his career, especially on the international stage, and a move to a Premier League club following Middlesbrough’s relegation this season would undoubtedly be the best way to go about that. Leicester and Stoke are both very keen on the defender while Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool have all made checks on him throughout the season.
