‘From what I’ve heard’ – Carlton Palmer issues verdict on new West Brom summer signing



West Brom were one of the quieter operators during the summer transfer window, welcoming five new additions to The Hawthorns. 

Alex Mowatt and Matt Clarke were the first players to arrive, with the former following Valerien Ismael from Barnsley, before Adam Reach made it three.

Jayson Molumby and Jordan Hugill were recruited late into August, with the latter’s mere presence impressing former West Brom midfielder Carlton Palmer.

The 29-year-old joined The Baggies on a season-long loan from Norwich City, with The Canaries now in the Premier League.

Hugill started seven games in the Championship for the Norfolk club last time out, appearing a further 29 times from the bench and scoring four times.

Speaking to This Is Futbol about what Hugill brings to the current West Brom squad, Palmer said: “From what I’ve heard, he’s absolutely fantastic in the dressing room.”

“If you’ve got a player like Jordan in and around your squad, when he’s in the team, he comes in and does a great job. 

“And if he’s not in the side, he’s not causing you a moment’s problem. He just gets on, trains hard and is great around the lads – good business.”

The verdict

Jordan Hugill adds an extra dimension to West Brom’s front line, and whilst the club already possess some very exciting attacking options, he will certainly play a part this season.

Rarely did a game go by during Norwich’s title-winning season last year, where Hugill did not feature, and his lack of game time was because of Teemu Pukki’s excellence.

Having a player that is great within the changing room even when he is not seeing regular minutes certainly helps the team out, and because he is such a hard worker, Ismael will be very content.

At present, it seems like Hugill might play a very similar role at West Brom as he did last year with Norwich, however, he will be waiting to pounce should a starting spot come available.
