West Brom ponder striker role for Tchoyi

West Bromwich Albion management are rethinking Somen Tchoyi's position.

Baggies coach Michael Appleton admits Tchoyi's devastating second-half display as a striker in Albion's 3-3 draw at Newcastle has given the coaching staff food for thought.

"He has played there a couple of times for Cameroon," Albion's assistant head coach told the club's website.

"When they have played three up front he has started in wide areas but come into central areas.

"He has looked a threat when we have seen him do that on international duty so it has been on our minds a little bit and we might have found a tool we can use for next season.

"Newcastle was incredible and it was great for him.

"In the first half he threatened a little bit in wide areas but as soon as we put him into central areas he caused havoc and he could have had another couple of goals.

"He earned his matchball because he put a real shift in for us in the second half and the lads all appreciated that."
