The Whites had Rodrigo, Kalvin Phillips, and Patrick Bamford to thank for scoring the goals that secured the three points against the Baggies.

The result means that Marcelo Bielsa’s men finished ninth in the top flight table following their long-awaited return to the Premier League.

One of the standout performers of their season has been striker Bamford, who ended the campaign with an impressive 17 goals and seven assists to his name, and David Prutton is convinced that he has earned a spot in England’s European Championship squad.

"Get him in there," the Sky Sports host told the YEP.

"He's got no tournament baggage and he's a great team player who is a hard worker and selfless.

"He's performed under pressure at a big club and always rises to the challenge of the questions against him.

"He's an all round good egg.

"Patrick is a very bright, intelligent and self aware fella and he will know that people will have been looking at him this season and saying 'go on then, show us what you can do.

"I think it's testament to his importance to the team that even when stellar signings have come in he has been possibly one of the first names on the team sheet and again when he has come back he has been one of the first names on the team sheet."

With the season now at an end, we’ve gathered the rest of today's Premier League transfer speculation below...
