It is done, sealed and delivered for Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi who will be looking to go head to head with the big boys next season as West Bromwich Albion got promoted to the Premier League after their 2-2 draw with QPR in their final Championship game of the season, Owosports Reports.

A point at The Hawthorns was enough for Slaven Bilic’s side to go up in second place behind Leeds United, thanks to rivals Brentford’s home defeat by Barnsley.

The Baggies draw would have been enough anyway, but Barnsley’s winner gave them a two point cushion.

Ryan Manning put QPR ahead before West Brom turned it round with goals either side of the break from Grady Diangana and Callum Robinson.

Eberechi Eze’s stunning equaliser earned QPR a point but was not enough to deny Albion a record fifth promotion to the Premier League.

The Baggies feared their automatic promotion hopes may have disappeared after losing their penultimate game at Huddersfield on Friday, but Brentford’s slip-up at Stoke the following day meant Bilic’s side had their fate in their own hands on the final day.
