'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Albion To Continue Scouring Europe

Dan Ashworth has confirmed the Baggies will continue to look at foreign imports whilst the club builds it's Premiership reputation.

Speaking to the Express & Star our Sporting and Technical Director admitted that being a newly promoted team the Baggies didn't have quite the same pull as more established sides in the transfer market, so while the club worked hard on changing that, the club would continue to source gems from abroad and think more outside of the box than most other clubs.

'This is where we are as a club, we are probably not as attractive an option because we're a newly promoted side. We perhaps have to think outside the box...Youssouf Mulumbu was a good example of that.'

Ashworth adds that retaining our Premiership status will go a long way to increasing our appeal to domestic based players, who aren't as big a risk in terms of fitting in and being able to cope with the league, but for every failure the Baggies suffer, there is equally another player that can be considered a roaring success.

'We are delighted with Peter, we knew we were getting an experienced player but until they actually play in the Premier League you never quite know what you're going to get. Valero was a good example of that for us. He had mixed success with us, yet has gone back to Spain with Villareal, who are 3rd in their league, and has been called up for the Spanish national side.'

He adds that quality players won't always make it in the Premiership and we can all list our own considered failures that hit the news over the years. Veron, Shevchenko, Robinho and so on just didn't click properly here and they aren't alone.

As long as we continue to benefit more than we lose out, it's a worthwhile exercise surely.
