West Brom captain Darren Fletcher has insists he has been impressed with the enthusiasm of new owner Guochuan Lai.
The Chinese entrepreneur bought the Baggies from Jeremy Peace last week and he has spent Tuesday touring the club and meeting with players and staff.
Lai met with captain Fletcher as he stopped by the training ground and the Scotland international was pleased to hear his plans to drive them forward.
The former Manchester United man told the new owner that the squad are ready to match his ambition as they prepare to kick off the season against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Fletcher said: “I was struck by how enthusiastic he was to meet everyone, all the players and all the staff – he has clearly got a real passion for the role he has taken on.
“I told him that the dressing room was full of a great group of lads who are really tight.
“We are ambitious too and want to take Albion forward and hopefully together with Mr Lai that is what we will do.”
