Jayson Molumby: 'I’m determined to improve & become a regular'

Molumby interview

Jayson Molumby believes West Bromwich Albion is the perfect place for him to “grow and improve” as a player.

The midfielder recently penned a permanent contract which keeps him at The Hawthorns until the summer of 2025, having initially joined in August from Brighton on loan.

Molumby has played 30 times for the Baggies in 2021/22, making 16 starts and a further 14 appearances from the bench.

And the 22-year-old Irishman says he’s determined to prove he’s capable of holding down a regular spot in the middle of the park for the next three years.

Jayson said: “I’m delighted to be here on a permanent basis.

“It was goal at the start of the season to try and get a permanent move here and I’ve managed to achieve it so I’m really happy. It’s a massive football club and I’m really happy to be here.

“I think there are some really good people here at West Bromwich Albion. There are so many people who work so hard behind the scenes and all the lads have been really good with me ever since I joined. 

“I’ve really enjoyed being around all the good people here at the club.

“It’s been a very tough campaign. The expectation this season was to get promoted automatically and if we weren’t able to achieve that, it was all about getting into the play-off places.

“It’s my first year playing senior football where those have been the expectations.

“We’ve fallen short this year and that’s so disappointing. As players, we need to look at ourselves and take responsibility. Ultimately, it’s us that have fallen short.

“Hopefully next season will be very different and we can achieve what the club expects us to achieve.

“When you come into a new club it can be tough to settle in and you want to play as much as you can. You’re desperate to impress and you’ll be in the team for some games and out the team for others. 

“I found it quite tough at times to get a rhythm going, but now that I’m here for the next three years, I want to kick on and make sure I’m a regular in the starting XI.

“I’m determined to improve and prove to everyone that I’m good enough to be a West Bromwich Albion regular.

“I think this is a great place for me grow and improve as a player. I was delighted when Albion came in for me and as I keep saying, it’s a huge club and I want to be a big part of it.

“As players, we need to handle the pressure of playing for a big club like Albion.

“I’m no different and I need to do more.”
