West Brom chief Ashworth reveals Di Matteo influence on Scharner deal

West Bromwich Albion chief Dan Ashworth has revealed how crucial manager Roberto di Matteo has been in the transfer market.

Ashworth says the club is quietly satisfied with their summer campaign.

He told the Birmingham Mail: "I speak with Robbie on transfers all the time and his contribution is vital. With Paul Scharner, for instance, Robbie called him and they spoke in German at length. Little things like that are vital and Robbie has bought into that."
