In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Carlton Palmer praised the impact that West Brom’s January signings have had since arriving at the club.
The likes of Mbaye Diagne, Okay Yokuslu, Robert Snodgrass and Ainsley Maitland-Niles were all brought in by manager Sam Allardyce during the last transfer window and are contributing to the Baggies’ fight at the bottom of the Premier League table.
Diagne, in particular, is making quite the impression at the Hawthorns, with the Senegalese striker managing to find the back of the net in the 1-1 draw against Manchester United in February.
Overall, Palmer is pleased with what he has seen from Allardyce’s new recruits, feeling that they have settled in well at the club.
Speaking exclusively to FFC, Palmer said:
“He’s got the players that he wanted to get in and they’re playing really well. Most of the guys that he’s brought in are foreigners who haven’t had any taste of English football before, they’ve hit the ground running.
“The players that he’s brought in have settled in fantastically well. The likes of Snodgrass have done well for Sam.”
Next up for Allardyce and his January signings is a clash against Everton at home as West Brom look to build on their recent 1-0 win over Brighton.
The Baggies could move three points behind relegation rivals Fulham by the end of Thursday should they win and Scott Parker’s side lose to Tottenham, so Allardyce will no doubt be desperate to see some big performances from his winter additions and the rest of the team.
