Indian firms interested in West Brom partnership

Some corporate firms in India are believed to be showing significant interest in hooking up with West Bromwich Albion.

The Baggies will lose property website Zoopla at the end of the season after it was confirmed that they will not sign on past this summer which has prompted a search for a new sponsor.

Albion's marketing director Adrian Wright told Express & Star that some companies in India had been in contact regarding a partnership with The Hawthorns outfit.

"We are going to meet some top corporate houses in India which have shown interest in becoming a sponsor," h said.

"It's in a preliminary stage, but if an Indian company becomes our sponsor it would be a great development for us. We are going to meet them before we fly out on Saturday.

"If it happens, the name of an Indian company will be seen for the first time on the jersey of an EPL club during Premier League matches."
