Sam Baldock fancies another promotion push after signing for Albion.
The former MK Dons and West Ham striker has joined on a four-year deal after weeks of speculation that he was set to make the move from Bristol City.
Baldock was part of the West Ham squad which went up to the Premier League via the play-offs in 2011-12.
And he can sense something similar with Albion after their recent upturn in form and spate of signings.
He said: “There has been a big turnaround in the last three games in picking up victories.
“I’m not surprised to see that with the amount of quality in the dressing room.”
“Obviously doing it before with West Ham I managed to feel what it was like to be in a promotion-winning side.
“The quality we have got in the dressing room here, the size of the club, the facilities and everything about the place, I don’t think there’s any reason why we can’t be pushing up there.”
Baldock believes the four-year deal is a show of faith in his ability.
He said: “I have made two appearances here at the Amex before and it will be good to experience that roar backing my team rather than the opposing team.
“I just want to get the boots on and get out on the pitch. I am looking forward to getting started.
“I don’t think the move has been too much of a secret, it’s been in the pipeline for quite a while but finally over the line and I’m delighted to be here.
“It shows a lot of faith from the powers that be that I warrant a four-year contract and hopefully fans will get to see what I’m all about for the length of the period.
“I have had games to play so it was pretty difficult to completely switch off, but as soon as the interest came about, obviously it’s a massive club and I was excited to hear of the interest and I’m really pleased it’s happened.”
