Brown Ideye's decision to stay now vindicated and he's getting the rewards

West Brom - The Hawthorns

Ideye has recently found his scoring touch after an uncertain period at The Hawthorns.

West Bromwich Albion forward Brown Ideye is enjoying a turnaround in form lately and is starting to find the net with regularity under Tony Pulis.

The Baggies record signing found the net twice during their 4-0 win over West Ham United to book their place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

He was close to leaving the club during the most recent transfer window but now seems to be benefiting from committing himself to the club after struggling under Alan Irvine earlier on in the season.

The 26-year-old told the Birmingham Mail: "The club has the decision who to bring in and sign.

"It’s unfortunate for the club that they weren’t able to bring in Cole but I wasn’t looking to leave West Brom and move to Qatar.

"I was ready to sit on the bench and wait for my time rather than leaving and going to Qatar."

In his past three games he has managed to find the net on four occasions and is showing more signs of why the club splashed out £8.8 million on him.

At the moment, the decision not to leave the club seems to be favouring both the club and the player. They are enjoying a good cup run, but Tony Pulis will be glad he is finding the net more often with the side still in a relegation battle, though there are positive signs he is building a good partnership with Saido Berahino in the final third. 

Now with the side a step away from Wembley in the FA Cup, it could be a terrific turnaround for the forward after a pretty poor start to his career at the Hawthorns.

He told their website: “I have never been to Wembley so I would love to be involved in a game there."

If he continues his good form in the next round of the competition, then he has a good chance of doing just that.
