A signed, match-worn Okay Yokuslu shirt from Wednesday night’s 1-1 draw against Blackburn is now available for supporters to bid on.

The money raised from the auction will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Turkey-Syria Earthquake Appeal.

Baggies fans can bid on the shirt here. The auction will end next Friday (February 24).

Albion showed their support for the DEC’s appeal when they hosted Rovers earlier this week, with the players donning special shirts in the warm-up to raise awareness and drive donations.

Black armbands were also worn as a mark of respect for the 35,000 people who are known to have died following the series of devastating earthquakes.

Supporters can find out more information about the DEC and how to donate to the fund here.

Survivors in Turkey and Syria have been left without shelter in freezing winter conditions and desperately need blankets, emergency shelter, food and clean water.

DEC charities and their local partners are among the first responders providing urgent help. Immediate priorities are search and rescue, medical treatment for the injured, shelter for those who have lost their homes, heating in safe spaces, blankets, warm clothes, and ensuring people have food and clean water.
