West Bromwich Albion captain Chris Brunt says new manager Steve Clarke will benefit working with the current backroom team.

Brunt believes Keith Downing and Dean Kiely will prove invaluable resources for Clarke.

"Keith and Dean have played a huge part in the success we have had in the last couple of years," he told the WBA website.

"They know the squad inside out and keeping them on board can only help Steve settle in and get a feeling for the club straight away."
