West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke says a debut against former club Sunderland will mean no extra motivation for Stephane Sessegnon.

Clarke is delighted to be able to call on the ex-Sunderland star.

"I won't have to motivate Stephane," he told the WBA website.

"He's got a new club, he's got a new challenge.

"You can see every day in training he's excited about the prospect of playing here.

"He's looking forward to the game at the weekend and I don't think it would matter who he was playing against - he would still be looking forward to the game at the weekend."
