West Brom want to add Graeme Jones to their backroom staff

West Brom want to add Graeme Jones to their backroom staff

West Bromwich Albion will be looking to make a swift return to the Premier League this season, but they will have a huge challenge on their hands if they are to be successful.

The Baggies were relegated after an abysmal showing in the top-flight, which has seen a number of the club’s top players depart from The Hawthorns.

Some of those that have not already left have been linked with possible moves away, whilst Darren Moore will be desperate to keep as many as he can for his side to mount a challenge.

The manager, who was recently appointed as the full-time coach following his impressive spell in the Premier League as caretaker, is keen to make a number of additions, including to his backroom staff.

The Daily Mail are claiming that Moore is interested in bringing Belgium’s World Cup coach Graeme Jones to the Hawthorns as his assistant. It is understood that talks have already got underway, although there is thought to be a considerable amount of interest in his services.

The Verdict:

The 48-year-old has vast experience of working in England, having been Roberto Martinez’s right-hand man during their time at Swansea City, Wigan Athletic and Everton.

An addition of Jones’ quality would help Moore, not only develop into a better manager but his squad of players and give them a perfect opportunity to help push back for a place in the Premier League.
