CRYSTAL Palace boss Tony Pulis says he's in talks with club officials about adding to his backroom staff at Selhurst Park. Former Eagles player Dave Kemp, who was Pulis' assistant at Stoke City, along with former Tottenham Hotspur and Queens Park Rangers manager Gerry Francis, are believed to be close to agreeing deals to arrive in SE25. The 55-year-old manager is also negotiating who Palace could sign in the January transfer window but admitted he won't be buying anyone for the sake of it. "I'm keen to bring certain people into the football club if I can, and I have spoken to the chairman and (chief executive) Phil Alexander," said Pulis. "There are areas in the group we need to improve. But it's getting the right players. Last thing I want to do is players who won't start. "You look at transfers. Whether we can do that or not, we'll have to see (to add more quality). "The togetherness in the group has always been a big thing and they're prepared to work for one another. "There are players I haven't seen yet that could come in (to my squad)."
