Pulis out as Crystal Palace manager

LONDON (AP) — Tony Pulis has left his position as Crystal Palace manager, on the eve of the new English Premier League season.

Palace says on its website on Friday that Pulis leaves by mutual consent.

British media reported Pulis grew frustrated at the club's lack of transfer activity this offseason and held talks with Palace co-chairman Steve Parish on Thursday.

Pulis kept Palace in England's lucrative top division last season despite the team having just four points from 11 matches and lying in last place when he was hired in November.
