Leo Ulloa says helping Albion stay in the Premier League will mean more to him than winning the title with Leicester.

The Argentinian marksman headed his first goal since returning from the Foxes on loan last month in the 3-1 FA Cup win against Coventry at the Amex which has set up a quarter-final visit to Manchester United next month.

Ulloa was a bit-part player in Leicester’s shock title triumph two seasons ago.

He rejoined Albion on loan for the rest of the season, despite competition from Crystal Palace and Aston Villa as well as in Spain from Leganes and Celta Vigo.

Ulloa said: “When I play here I feel different. Wearing this shirt it’s different for me. When I had all the options and this option it was easy to say I was coming here.

“I want to stay here for a long time now but we’ll see what happens. Leicester was a very nice time for me, wonderful in my career, but now I have to look forward.

“They’ve got Vardy, Iheanacho, Okazaki, Slimani, Musa, they have too many strikers. It’s so difficult to play there.”

Ulloa’s goal was his first for Albion since heading them into the Championship play-offs at Nottingham Forest in May 2014 and came in his first 90 minutes since August.

He told The Argus: “I hope for that. I came here for that, to try to help the team and score.

“I needed to play like this. It was a long time since I’ve played 90 minutes, maybe six or seven months. I need to play, I need some minutes. My fitness needs to be better.

“I have to train hard and be ready for when the gaffer needs me. It’s difficult when you don’t play for a long time.”

Albion visit United in a re-run of the 1983 final, which they lost after a replay, over the weekend of March 17 and 18.

Their clashing Premier League trip to Manchester City will now be played towards the end of the season.
