Alexis Mac Allister has revealed the family backing which will help him settle in England.

Albion’s Argentinian star has been house-hunting after his loan at Boca Juniors was cut short.

He was accompanied by his father Carlos, a former Boca and Argentina defender, when he arrived in England last weekend.

Mac Allister said: “I came with dad. He will stay for a few days.

“My girlfriend will also come for a few days.

“The idea is to always have people close, be it my girlfriend, my dad, my mum or someone from the family.

“I’ve told them that, if any of them want to come and spend some time here, the doors to my house will be open.

“In theory, I will be here but always with some visitors.”
