West Brom insist plenty of interest in shirt sponsorship

West Brom insist they're receiving plenty of interest for their vacant shirt sponsorship space.

The Baggies have still not found a suitable sponsor following the end of their four-year agreement with T-Mobile.

And they achieved a Premier League first on Saturday as both Albion and opponents West Ham took to the field without shirt sponsors.

The Hammers pulled the plug on their relationship with XL Holidays following the collapse of the firm - and suspended all sales of replica shirts.

Tony Mowbray's troops at least had something to cheer after winning 3-2.

Albion are actively pursuing a new sponsorship deal, and a club spokesman said: "We've still got interested parties and discussions are ongoing."

Several companies are believed to have shown interest but so far none have agreed to stump up the fee that chairman Jeremy Peace is looking for following the club's elevation to England's top tier.
