Chadli to make Baggies bow against Delhi Dynamos

Strong Albion line-up to face Indian Super League side

NEW signing Nacer Chadli will make his eagerly-anticipated Albion debut at The Hawthorns on Saturday against Delhi Dynamos.

The attacking midfielder was signed from Tottenham Hotspur on Monday for an undisclosed fee and goes straight into the starting XI to face Delhi in the international friendly (ko 3pm).

Chadli will use the opportunity of the international break to get vital minutes under his belt for the Baggies.

Fellow January new boy Allan Nyom, who arrived on deadline day, will also start against the Indian Super League side. 

The pair join what will be a strong XI against the Dynamos, which also includes Boaz Myhill, Craig Dawson, Jonas Olsson, Kane Wilson, Claudio Yacob, Craig Gardner and Matt Phillips.

The remainder of Saturday's squad will be made up of promising Albion youngsters from the club's Premier League 2 and Under-18 set-up.

Tickets for Saturday’s fixture are just £5 each and can be purchased online here. Supporters are advised to use the print-at-home function to avoid queueing to collect tickets. 

All proceeds from the fixture will be donated to charities, including The Albion Foundation.
