West Bromwich Albion legend Tony Brown is expecting Claudio Yacob to make an even bigger impact next season.
The Argentina midfielder was rated one of the signings of the season last term.
Bomber told the WBA website: “Claudio Yacob had an incredible season.
“A lot of people have been crying out for us to get someone in who can protect the back-four for many years.
“Now we have someone who has done that superbly.
“He’s patrolled that midfield and he has made life easier for the back-four.
“A lot of the things he does might go unnoticed to some people, but I’m sure his manager and his team-mates know how important he is to the team.
“I’ve taken to him big time."
