West Brom veteran Reid: Everyone telling me Jones gun player

West Bromwich Albion veteran Steven Reid has welcomed the arrival of Billy Jones from Preston North End.

The pair could be competing for the right-back slot next season.

"I've spoken to a few lads throughout the summer and they've mentioned what a good player he is," Reid told the WBA website. "It will be good competition for places and I'm looking forward to the season ahead.

"I was pleased with the way I finished the season and hopefully I can continue that in pre-season and be a major part of the plans under the gaffer.

"I was a bit disappointed last season that I didn't play more, especially in the run that we had when we weren't getting results.

"Hopefully I can start more league games next season and be a major influence, whether that's at right-back or slotting in for the odd game at central midfield.

"I'd just be delighted to be out there a bit more. The position I've played in most of my career, and the position I probably favour, is central midfield.

"But I can happily slot into most positions over the park.

"As long as I play the games and I'm involved, I'm not too bothered where I play."
