A number of West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter to praise Okay Yokuslu’s latest performance for the Baggies.
The Turkey international joined West Brom on loan from Celta Vigo at the start of February and has made four appearances to date for Sam Allardyce’s side.
Despite not having spent much time at The Hawthorns, Yokuslu has very much hit the ground running and is already becoming a fan favourite.
In his three starts for West Brom, the team has remained unbeaten, following up their draws against Manchester United and Burnley with Saturday’s victory over Brighton.
Kyle Bartley netted the winner for the hosts in the 11th minute, drifting away from his marker to head home Conor Gallagher’s delivery.
West Brom triumphed over the Seagulls in a strange game which saw the visitors find the back of the net, only for the goal to be disallowed, re-allowed, and disallowed once again.
Brighton also missed two penalties over the course of the match, and the Baggies defended stoutly, with Yokuslu once again playing a big part in his side’s result.
Although the 26-year-old conceded a penalty, it didn’t matter in the end, and he was otherwise superb as he broke up play, protected the Albion back line and weighed in with crunching tackles.
Here is what some West Brom fans were saying during and after the game:
I don’t think I’ve ever fallen for an Albion player harder or faster than I have for Okay Yokuşlu

okay yokuslu has made all the difference. The type of player we’ve needed for about 3 years. Absolute class player.

How good is Yokuslu by the way???? Bartley immense again too. We are so so good, when’s the staying up party????????

Yokuslu is already in the top 3 players for player of the season.
Sign him up. #wba

My assessment of that game: we have got a little bit better (Yokuslu an excellent signing) but perhaps even more importantly we’ve got a whole lot luckier. #wba

Yokuslu has been class since he signed. Crying out for that for years! Hopefully there is a ridiculous appearence clause like there was in Pereira’s deal. Highly doubtful but imagine 🤣🤣
