I did not know about the loan deal details and his rep's role. I would not put all the blame on Pulis for Gnabry's failure at WBA though. If the player was performing well in training, he would have played. Pulis is not that dumb, he will use all the assets at his disposal. Apparently his attitude was not above reproach either at WBA. When he came back at AFC half way last season, he was not even fit and was never called up by Arsène. So things are not that simple as we may see them form the outside.
