West Brom's Keith Andrews has thanked new England manager Roy Hodgson for establishing the club as Barclays Premier League regulars.

Hodgson will lead his country into Euro 2012 battle this summer having accepted the Football Association's offer of employment as Fabio Capello's successor. However, he will do so with the Baggies looking for a replacement from a position of strength after finishing their second season back in the top flight in 10th place.

Andrews, who will also be at Euro 2012 with the Republic of Ireland, said: "I am delighted for him personally but, selfishly probably, the players at West Brom were disappointed he left."
