Glenn Murray said he hopes Adam Lallana will use his Liverpool experience to play a leading role in the Albion dressing room.

Lallana signed a three-year deal after leaving Anfield on a free transfer, bringing an end to a six-year spell that saw him win the Champions League and Premier League.

Murray is hoping the midfielder's experience will have a big impact on the Albion squad.

While co-hosting the talkSPORT Breakfast on Tuesday morning, Murray said: “It’s a fantastic signing for the club.

"It shows the calibre of the player we can attract now.

“Even though he’s a little bit older than what we’d prefer at 32, there’s still plenty of football left in Adam Lallana; he’s fantastic and he’s been at a huge club in Liverpool.

“It also shows the vision of how the chairman wants to progress the football club.

“First and foremost you want him to play week in, week out and do what he can on the pitch – we all know his abilities and what he is capable of – but I think more than that we are looking for a leader, someone who has won those trophies and knows the way to act to be successful.

“We want that to rub off on our younger players, and at the age he’s at we are looking for him to be our leader for the next three of four years.”

Murray has previously been praised for his influence in the Albion dressing room.

Asked about the importance of Murray's influence, Graham Potter said: "I've said all season that that's a massive part of what he brings.

"There's Neal, there's Aaron, there's young players that are playing in his position and I think how he conducts and he acts as a professional, he's been a really good role model for them.

"He's ready to help the team.

"He's ready to help the guys and he's been a joy to work with.

"A fantastic professional and he's really important for us."
