West Brom chairman Jeremy Peace insists the club will not break the bank to retain their top-flight status next season.

The Baggies will be back in the big time after securing an immediate return courtesy of a 3-2 weekend win at Doncaster Rovers.

West Brom are the proverbial yo-yo club and Peace has no problems with the team adopting a cautious approach financially next season.

Peace is keen for Roberto Di Matteo's squad to stay up and insists they will be creative as they look to find ways of bolstering the manager's budget.

Prudent

"We will be positive but we will remain relatively prudent," he admitted.

"Our number one priority is always to keep the club solvent while trying to compete successfully at the highest possible level.

"Everyone has seen football clubs get into dire financial difficulties in recent years but this will not happen at Albion on my watch. We will continue to be sensible and realistic.

"A club of our size, without a benefactor, can only spend a certain amount and we have to be more inventive in the way we use our comparatively limited resources."
