Many West Brom fans have hailed Okay Yokuslu’s performance against Burnley as his reputation at The Hawthorns continues to grow.
The deadline day signing started in the heart of the Albion midfield once again and it didn’t take him long to impress.
The 26-year-old loanee immediately threw himself into challenges and once again Albion fans were saying he is the type of player we have missed this season.
Yokulsu was handed his second start on Sunday and he didn’t look fazed by the important occasion that faced Albion at Turf Moor.
Big Sam needed players who could immediately adapt to his way of playing and Yokuslu has definitely done that.
The midfielder looks as if he has been here for years and his performance against Burnley had some fans demanding the club makes his move permanent.
Many Baggies fans loved the midfielder’s tenacity against Burnley as he flew into a flurry of challenges just before half time.
Others stressed that we should’ve had a player like Yokuslu from the start of the season and suggested that his signing was too little too late by the club.

Okay Yokuslu tackles his missus when he wakes up, he then tackles his weetabix before finally tackling his front door to leave his house #wba

Okay has been class since he joined, showed great commitment and isn’t scared to get stuck in. We have to sign him at the end of the season.

Yokuslu quite often referred to as a Yacob/Mulumbu type.
My the only one who thinks he's more a Fletcher?
Breaks things up excellently and equally tidy on the ball. Can be found in def and att positions, occupies spaces well and is always offering for the ball. Very tidy player

Yokuslu has already become a standout player for us and if we have any hope of staying up he must start every game for the rest of the season.
