Championship challenge driving Tosin

ALBION new-boy Tosin Adarabioyo says the cut and thrust of a second-tier campaign will aid his footballing development.

The 20-year-old central defender has agreed a season-long loan at The Hawthorns from Premier League Champions Manchester City - a move that feels somewhat "strange" to a young man out-and-about for the first time in his career.

"It feels very strange considering the amount of time I've been at Manchester City," he laughed.

"I think it's the time in my career where I need to play as many games as I can.

"The challenge of the Championship of playing two games a week so it's about adapting to that."

And - as always seems to be the case - he paid tribute to Head Coach Darren Moore for the role our gaffer played in bringing him to the Baggies.

Tosin added: "Darren Moore was a big part of my decision.

"He's a great guy. I cant wait to start working under him.

"In terms of his personality, how he comes across and his history of being a centre-half, I think I can learn a lot from him."
