Albion target Florin Andone has set his sights on more goals for Deportivo La Coruna after scoring on his return to the starting XI.

The Romanian netted at Villarreal, one of his old clubs, to secure a 1-1 draw which lifted Depor out of the drop zone in Spain.

His downward header in the closing stages was followed by a badge-kissing celebration.

It was his first start under head coach Cristobal Parralo, who replaced Pep Mel in charge in late October.

Andone is one of the strikers of interest to Albion as they look to strengthen this month.

But he now appears to be in favour in Spain.

He said: “I’m very glad the manager put his trust in me.

“I had two-and-a-half months without playing as a starter.

“This is my first start with this manager and I thought it went well.

“Thanks to God, I scored the goal. I needed the goal. I needed the match to believe in myself and to have that confidence.

“I’m quite sad because I had some time without playing.

“But this is magnificent and I hope to score more for the team in the future.”

Andone was not asked about a possible move in the post-match mixed zone and has his thoughts on forthcoming tests against Valencia and Real Madrid.

He said: “We want to bring some happiness to the supporters because they have had some time without enjoying three points at home.”
