Shane Long: Arrival from Reading had impact on West Brom's accounts

That figure represents a drop in surplus from the £9.1m for the equivalent period 12 months earlier and takes into account the £6m signing of Shane Long from Reading in the summer of 2011.

Turnover was up to a record £66.7m, 74% of which was paid out in salaries, while the club's net debt has been reduced from £2m to just £500,000.

Club chief executive Mark Jenkins said in a statement: "The club has continued to invest in its playing squad, both in transfer fees and wages and total salaries now exceed £50m per year.

"However, with careful budgeting and tight financial controls, we have managed to match our revenue to our costs and record a pre-tax profit of £1.5m."

The financial report is the first full set of accounts released by West Bromwich Albion Group Ltd since its formation in August 2010.

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
