West Brom manager Tony Pulis has been discussing how he intends to use Nacer Chadli this season.

As quoted by the Birmingham Mail, Baggies boss Pulis held discussions with the media over who should play in the central attacking role behind the striker in his system.

Pulis discusses the possibility of playing James Morrison there but also conceded that Chadli is a good option to have when deployed as a number 10.

In that pocket behind Morrison is a good player. And what Morrison does well is joins in and makes you strong but when you get the ball he can get up there and make you a goal.

Chadli has had a rocky relationship with Pulis since his arrival from Tottenham Hotspur and appears to be regarded as something of an enigma at the Hawthorns.

Although Pulis praised Chadli’s quality and stated he’d be a competent number 10, he outlined his plans for the Belgian international and insisted he’d be better suited on the left wing, with Kieran Gibbs behind him.

Chads (Chadli) or Moz (Morrison) could do that but I would like Chadli with Gibbs. I think those two together would be very good but Chadli could play 10.

Chadli played at left wing-back for Belgium recently and looks to be at his best when on the flank.
