West Brom midfielder Dorrans excited about Premiership chance

West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans is excited going into his first Premiership season.

Dorrans, who swept the boards in the Baggies' end-of-season awards, is relishing a first full Premier League campaign after tasting the top flight briefly two seasons ago.

And he believes fans have yet to see the best of him despite a stunning season in the Championship.

"I feel I can still develop," he told the Express & Star. "I'm almost 23 and I don't think that's young in football any more, but there were some games last season when I came off the pitch disappointed because I still felt I could give more.

"I enjoyed the season but I still feel I've got more to come. You can always still improve and you never stop learning.

"I am confident in my own ability that I can hold my own in the Premier League. I came down here when the club were in the Premier League and I was confident that I would work my way in. I played a handful of games in the Premier League last time and really enjoyed but unfortunately I picked up an injury towards the end.

"But hopefully next season I can kick on and we can do well.

"I'm sure the gaffer will bring in his own players and strengthen his team and hopefully he can have a good season."
