West Brom manager Sam Allardyce has admitted the January transfer window will be important to the club’s hopes of survival.
The 66-year-old has been tasked with the job of keeping the Baggies in the Premier League and signed a contract until the end of the 2021-22 season.
Allardyce replaced Slaven Bilic, who was sacked after West Brom secured only one victory from their opening 13 games to leave them two points from safety.
Speaking to talkSPORT on Thursday morning, the new man in the hotseat at the Hawthorns said:
“They (the board) are prepared to get some players, but we need to find where those players are and who wants to let a player go in this pandemic.
“I can’t suggest at this moment how many players we need.
“By the time I had finished four weeks and no wins in six games at Crystal Palace, I knew exactly what we needed to do and pushed Steve (Parish) beyond the brink of really where he wanted to go which paid off in the end.
“It will be a very important part I think and while the players here are trying their very best and had a fantastic gutsy performance at Manchester City, which I watched live on the TV, it is always good when a player sees a new player come in.
“And then sees that player on the training ground who will make them better. The difficulty is finding that player and we will have to do our best to do that.”
