Many West Brom fans have given their backing to Semi Ajayi to succeed in the Premier League if the Baggies are playing top-flight football next season.
Twitter channel @BaggiesHQ asked followers if they think the 26-year-old is good enough to start for Slaven Bilic’s team if they return to the top tier of English football, with many replying in the affirmative.
Do you think Semi Ajayi will be good enough to start in the Premier League for us next season?

The centre-back was signed from Rotherham for just £1.49m last summer and has started all but two of Albion’s Championship matches this season, helping them to occupy an automatic promotion place before the season was halted two months ago amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Ajayi, a physically dominant defender at 1.93m in height, has stood out during 2019/20 for his exceptional aerial ability. He has reached double figures for successful aerial duels in three matches, peaking with 14 headers won in the 1-0 victory at Preston in December (as per WhoScored). He has also been effective at the other end of the pitch, netting five goals since the start of the campaign.
Would Semi Ajayi start for West Brom in the Premier League?
These West Brom fans on Twitter are in no doubt that he could thrive in the top flight:
Easily has the potential to do so https://t.co/4Rm57esaQV

His attributes are a perfect match for the prem & the way Slav wants us to play, having a higher defensive line his pace & physicality does/will get us out of trouble, especially when we behind & chasing games in prem
