West Bromwich Albion defender Gareth McAuley has revealed that he and his teammates are already thinking about pre-season preparations.

The Premier League season ended just two weeks ago, but McAuley has started thinking about how the club can improve on their 17th-placed finish.

"The boys are talking about coming back for pre-season already," McAuley told the club's official website. "They're talking about coming back and putting it right.

"We need to get off to a good start because last year we didn't have the best of starts and we never really got going. We really need to get going in pre-season this year."

The Baggies are searching for a new head coach following the departure of Pepe Mel earlier this month.
