West Brom: Journalist ‘pleased’ as Baggies sign Pieters

West Brom: Journalist ‘pleased’ as Baggies sign Pieters -West Bromwich Albion News

Journalist Alex James has been left ‘pleased’ after West Bromwich Albion complete the signing of another free agent after ex-Celtic star Tom Rogic.

The Lowdown: Pieters signs…

Indeed, following on from the former Hoops midfielder, Steve Bruce’s side have sealed a Bosman deal for ex-Burnley left-back Erik Pieters – coming after the defender had trained with West Brom for weeks.

The 34-year-old moves to the Hawthorns with bags of experience, having played in both the Champions League and Premier League, but he is now on a mission to help Bruce guide his side to a strong Championship campaign.

Pieters has also represented the Netherlands at international level previously and his know-how playing at the top level could prove invaluable to West Brom.

The Latest: James ‘pleased’ by Pieters signing…

Taking to social media, Lancs Live reporter James says he is ‘pleased’ for the Dutchman and insists Pieters still has ‘plenty to offer’.

He explained:

“Last week we reported that Erik Pieters was set to join West Brom having been training with them. Now confirmed. Pleased for him. Still think he has plenty to offer.”

The Verdict: Good move…

If West Brom are to potentially begin a hard road back to promotion contention, experienced figureheads like the ex-Stoke City man will be very useful both on the pitch and inside the dressing room.

Pieters’ quality cannot be understated either with the full-back averaging more tackles per 90 than any Burnley player last season when given the opportunity, even if it was over just eight starts (WhoScored).

Indeed, there is no reason to believe he can’t become a real success under Bruce with his experience, toughness and versatility.
