Baggies owner remains committed

West Brom chief executive Martin Goodman has reassured fans owner Guochuan Lai is not considering selling the club.

Chinese businessmen Lai only acquired the Baggies last year when he gained Jeremy Peace's 88% controlling stake but widespread reports last month claimed US investors were hoping to strike a deal with him to broker another buyout.

However, Lai turned the interest down and Goodman is sure the current owner has no plans to sell.

"It was rejected and he decided to maintain his majority,” Goodman is quoted as saying in the Birmingham Mail. "I think it was affirmation of his commitment. Lai is here for the foreseeable future."
