Yacob enjoying life as a West Brom player

Argentine midfielder Claudio Yacob says he is loving life with West Bromwich Albion.

The 25-year old, who arrived at The Hawthorns from homeland club Racing Avellaneda in the summer, has adjusted well to Premier League football and suggests he will only get better the more time he spends with the Baggies.

"I don't capture the attention like other players, for example (Romelu) Lukaku and (Shane) Long," he said.

"I don't score goals because that isn't my work, but I think that what I do is important for helping the team to reach their main objective. To score goals is important but not the most important thing.

"I am really thankful for the support that the fans give to me and I feel that I want to give back to them all that I can. I am very happy and I like the song that they have done for me.

"As I improve my English, I get closer to the players. Now I can have some short conversations. It's very important for me to mix with the players and feel more comfortable.

"I like to talk with the younger players because I notice that it's important for them to talk with me. That situation also gives me the chance to practice my English, and they are very patient with me.

"I am very happy with all the players because they take care of me."
