Anthony Knockaert signed a three-and-a-half year contract for Albion in January 2016, after arriving from Belgian side Standard Liege.

Knockaert began his senior professional career with Guingamp in 2009; there he helped the club win promotion from the third to the second tier of French football in 2011.
He transferred to Leicester City in August 2012, signing a three-year contract with the Foxes, and helped the club reach the play-offs in his first season at the club, although they were knocked out at the semi-final stage.
The following season Leicester won automatic promotion, and he played an integral part in their success as they won the Championship.
Last summer, after a season in the Premier League, Knockaert rejected a new contract at Leicester to sign for Belgian top-flight side Standard Liege; having made 82 starts and 24 substitute appearances, and scored 13 goals for the Foxes.
In the first half of the current season, he played 20 times for Liege, scoring five goals in the Belgian Pro League, prior to his return to England with Albion.
