Leeds star sends brilliant West Brom message
Leeds United defender Luke Ayling has congratulated his former team-mate Kyle Bartley on his promotion to the Premier League with West Bromwich Albion.
There has been a real evidence of camaraderie between the two sides as they duelled for the Championship title, with Leeds pipping West Brom to the title by ten points.
And that was evident by Ayling’s message to his former team-mate at Elland Road Bartley.
Bartley, who spent the 2016-17 on loan at Leeds with Ayling, has helped Albion to promotion at the second attempt following his arrival from Swansea City two years ago.
New Albion kit revealed for 2020-21 season
West Brom have released their new home kit for the 2020-21 season.
Fresh off the back of Albion’s promotion back to the Premier League, the strip Slaven Bilic ‘s men will grace the top flight in has been revealed.
The kit once again features the iconic stripes, a staple of Albion’s colours and it is again made by Puma and sponsored by the Ideal Boilers company.
Albion secured their return to the top flight with a 2-2 draw at home to Queens Park Rangers with that result enough to send them up with Brentford and Fulham failing to win their matches against Barnsley and Wigan Athletic respectively.

West Brom open contract talks following promotion
West Brom have begun contract negotiations with Callum Morton according to reports.
Website westbromnews.co.uk claim that the 20-year-old has impressed the Albion hierarchy on loan at Northampton Town sufficiently enough to warrant a new deal.
Morton spent 2019-20 with Keith Curle’s side and helped them to promotion through League Two’s play-offs, scoring in a 4-0 win over Exeter City at Wembley.
The former Braintee United forward scored eight goals in 12 appearances at Sixfields in a hugely impressive spell, joining the club in January and helping them over the line.

The classy message that means the world to Albion
As The Hawthorns partied into the night – inside and outside the newly crowned Premier League stadium – it’s important that one modest message of congratulations doesn’t slip by unnoticed.
Just over a year ago, in very different circumstances at a heaving Hawthorns, West Brom saw their promotion dream ended by fierce rivals Aston Villa.
It was to be the last act as caretaker manager for Jimmy Shan, who bowed out after that dramatic Championship play-off semi final defeat.
Shan is not one to make a fuss. Confident but understated during his fleeting time as Albion boss, he knew it was time to move aside and make way for a Baggies revolution.
