'Best thing to happen': Tony Pulis on Serge Gnabry and his famous West Brom loan spell

Serge Gnabry's ill-fated loan spell at West Brom is arguably talked about just as much as his exploits at the top level.

The 28-year-old is among some of the best attacking players in Europe, having scored 81 goals in 221 games for Bayern Munich.

But back in 2015, a young Gnabry was sent out on loan from Arsenal to Albion on the final day of the summer window.

Three appearances later and Gnabry was recalled by the Gunners - before he moved to Werder Bremen for £5m.

His career grew from there but his poor loan spell and the fact he didn't play under Tony Pulis at West Brom is something that still to this day is levelled at the ex-manager whenever Gnabry crops up with a goal.
