‘Determined’ Pereira ‘excited’ by Albion ambition

10th August

Matheus Pereira says he will do “everything within my power” to help his team-mates deliver Albion’s ambition of promotion.

The 23-year-old Brazilian joined on a season-long loan from Sporting Lisbon on deadline day, with a view to a permanent deal.

And the right-footed winger says his arrival at The Hawthorns is a “huge moment” in his fledgling career.

“I’m delighted to be here,” he said. “It is a huge moment in my career.

When asked about what type of player Albion fans can expect to see he remained coy, adding: “I don’t really like to talk much about myself.

What I will say is that my team-mates, the club, the fans, the board - who have made a tremendous effort to get me here - can expect a determined, committed player.
