West Brom summer watch round-up: Burke, Rondon, Hegazi



It was an agonising first season back in the Championship last season for West Brom, as they missed out an immediate return to the Premier League following a penalty shoot out defeat to local rivals Aston Villa in the play-off semi finals.

Having sacked head coach Darren Moore at the start of March, it had been interim manager Jimmy Shan who had led the club through until the end of the season.

Now however the Baggies have a new manager in place, after they confirmed the appointment Slaven Bilic on a two year deal earlier this week.

While Bilic will surely have his new squad aiming for the Premier League again when they return for pre-season, for now the focus for a number of their side appears to be other matters, with a number still involved in international football.

Here, we take a look at how some of that West Brom side have had to say about their time away from club football in our latest social media round up.

Oliver Burke

It was a big international break for Oliver Burke, who scored his first goal for Scotland, netting a late winner in their Euro 2020 qualifying win over Cyrpus on Saturday. Following their subsequent loss to World Cup semi finalists Belgium on Tuesday, Burke took to Instagram again, looking forward to his break ahead of his return to West Brom.

Having spent the second half of the season on loan at Celtic, Burke will be hoping to provide a few more moments like this next season in order to prove that he may yet have a future at The Hawthorns.

Salomon Rondon

Rondon’s international break isn’t over yet, with the striker still to compete in the Copa America with Venezuela. He has however already reached a landmark during his time away, after his double in a 3-0 friendly win over the USA making him his nation’s all time leading scorer.

Having enjoyed an impressive season on loan with Newcastle in the Premier League last season, Rondon looks set to be in high demand in the summer, and he may just have added another nought to his asking price, after posting a rather impressive video of himself on his Instagram, in which he attempts to play as a goalkeeper rather than a striker in training with his national side.

Another West Brom player with a big summer of football ahead of him, Hegazi has been named in Egypt’s squad for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations.

The defender recently played the full 90 minutes of his country’s 1-0 friendly win over Tanzania, and later took to Instagram to post a picture of him in action ahead of the continental championship.
