Brandon Thomas-Asante’s excellent preseason fitness training has garnered praise from West Brom teammate John Swift.
Thomas-Asante, who joined Albion from Salford City last summer, scored nine goals in 35 games last season and thrilled Albion fans with his high-energy performances.
And the forward’s teammate, Swift, has claimed that the 24-year-old’s all-action displays are easy to understand considering the effort he has already put in during pre-season.
“I’d have to say Brandon has impressed me the most in pre-season so far, especially with the running. I don’t think I realised how fit he actually was,” he said.
“You see in matches how quick he can be and how much he can put defenders under pressure with his running, but actually over a long distance, the ability to just keep going and going and going is something he’s really strong at.
“I think a lot of the lads have been really impressed with Brandon so far.”
After their recent return, Albion are well into their pre-season routine, preparing for an upcoming training camp at St George’s Park before their first friendly behind closed doors against League One Shrewsbury Town.
