Graeme Jones has swapped the World Cup for West Bromwich Albion after agreeing to become Darren Moore's assistant. 

The experienced coach has ended his long-standing association with Belgium manager Roberto Martinez after helping The Red Devils to finish third at this summer's World Cup. 

Jones, who has known Moore since their playing days together at Doncaster Rovers, is now relishing the challenge of helping Albion get back to the Premier League. 

"I think leaving Roberto wasn't easy because we were still really close and massive friends. But I needed something new," said Jones.

"From a football perspective we need to get West Brom back to where we should be, where we were.

"Hopefully we can introduce a different brand of football, obviously still paying attention to defending well but playing expansive football."
