The Baggies already know they will not be playing Premier League football next term.

Lee and his long-time boss Sam Allardyce announced earlier this week that they will leave West Brom after failing to keep them up.

However, despite their short stint proving to be an unsuccessful one and ending with another loss, it seems the 62-year-old wanted a special keepsake from the occasion.

Following the final whistle, Lee headed over to the Leeds dug-out to shake hands and embrace Bielsa.

And it was then that the Argentine was left looking completely bemused as the Liverpudlian asked to swap jackets.

A smile appeared on Bielsa’s face as he suddenly grasped what Lee was asking for.

The Elland Road hero then unzipped his jacket and quickly checked his pockets.

He then seemed to suggest that he would swap jackets with the Baggies coach down in the tunnel.

Leeds ended their first season back in the Premier League with a fourth-straight win in front of returning fans.

It was the first time that their supporters have watched the side in the top-flight for 17 years, and the 8,000 in attendance created a fine atmosphere as Bielsa’s team produced a fitting finale.

Rodrigo, Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford fired them to victory and sealed a ninth-placed finish.

Hal-Robson Kanu grabbed a late consolation for West Brom, who must now prepare themselves for a return to the Championship.
