Jay Rodriguez has bid a fond farewell to Albion supporters following his move to Premier League Burnley.
J-Rod, a popular figure at The Hawthorns and firm fans’ favourite, has left this heartfelt message to the Club’s supporters…
"I wanted to take the opportunity to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone at Albion for helping me so much during my two years at the Club.
"The fans, my team-mates, the staff - I cannot speak highly enough of all the people who make the Club such a special place to be.
“I was desperate for us to get promoted last season and the disappointment of that narrow miss cut deeply.
"The Club did everything it could to persuade me to stay and this has not been an easy decision by any means.
“But at this stage in my career, I found the chance to play again in the Premier League at my hometown club too good to turn down and I hope everyone will respect that.
“I have nothing but best wishes for the club I leave behind. I’ll be backing you to succeed in a new era under Slaven Bilić and hope that I can be back at The Hawthorns at the first available opportunity for a Premier League fixture.
“Until then, a sincere 'thank you' all for your support. I will never forget it.”
