West Brom's Semi Ajayi

The 26-year-old Nigeria international has expressed his delight after helping his side return to the English top-flight.

Semi Ajayi has shared his feelings after West Bromwich Albion secured promotion to the Premier League on Wednesday evening.

The Baggies returned to the English top-flight after two years in the Championship following their 2-2 draw with Queens Park Rangers and defeat to third-placed side Brentford.

The Nigeria international featured for the duration of the game as goals from Grady Diangana and Callum Robinson cancelled out Ryan Manning and Eberechi Eze strikes.

Ajayi teamed up with Slaven Bilic’s men in the summer of 2019 on a four-year contract after his eye-catching performances for Rotherham United.Article continues below

The centre-back was one of the stand-out performers for Rotherham in the 2018-19 season as he scored seven league goals in 46 appearances but his efforts were not enough to help the club avoid relegation.

For his performances, however, he was named Championship Player of the Month for April and won the club’s Player and Goal of the Season awards.

Since joining West Brom, he has been a consistent figure for the side, having played 47 games across all competitions for the side, scoring five goals to ensure the Baggies’ return to the English top-flight.

Following the success, the Super Eagles versatile player has taken to social media to express his happiness.

“God is the greatest, Premier League, we did it,” Ajayi posted on Instagram
