And Paul Suart, West Brom’s reporter at the Birmingham Mail, believes the former Boro midfielder has made the right decision.A “bumper deal” has been on the table for a number of weeks from Albion, he says. “Absolutely.“Despite missing much of the campaign, Morrison still finished as Albion’s third-highest scorer last season.“And his tally of three Premier League assists was not surpassed, only equalled by Darren Fletcher, Chris Brunt and Craig Gardner.“Sure, he can drift out of games, but when he drifts back in Morrison has the vision, passing range and finishing touch to make a difference and that few, if any, other players at the club possess.” “I’m not saying we should have an English manager but, of the English managers, I actually would go for Sam Allardyce,” Bernstein told the Daily Telegraph.“He’s a very powerful character.“I think he’s got the personality, the strength, he’s a good technical manager, he’s very experienced and he’s someone who perhaps could imbue confidence.” Claude Puel.That’s the man tasked with building on Southampton’s success.He’s managed Monaco, Lille, Lyon and Nice in the past.

Albion, though, are said to be positive about getting a deal over the line and are happy to match or even better his current £25,000 a week contract.
