West Brom had a fairly busy transfer window last summer in terms of signing new players and removing some from the club.
Looking ahead to this summer’s window, it looks like a hint has already emerged of a potential deal that could take place at The Hawthorns before the start of next season.
What are the news?
In a recent West Brom postbag article from The Athletic, Baggies reporter Steve Madeley was asked whether or not there will be a big player overhaul at the Midlands club in the upcoming summer transfer window.
In response, Madeley had this to say about the future of a few players currently on loan at the club: “Matt Clarke’s loan to Brighton will expire, as will Jayson Molumby’s, but there’s a good chance West Brom will trigger a clause. to make her move permanently.
Since arriving at Albion last August on loan from Premier League club Brighton with an option to buy, the midfielder has made 24 Championship for the Baggies appearances, starting just 12 times.
In those games, the Irishman only found the back of the net once and provided no assists, also racking up more yellow cards (eight) than any other player in Steve Bruce’s squad and also a red card.
With just 21 tackles made and 18 interceptions made, the Baggies had to rely on a few other players to help keep the team as strong defensively as possible. Even from an attacking perspective, the 22-year-old hasn’t blown anyone away, as only three of his 14 shots have come on target.
The fans will boil
According to WhoScored, the midfielder earned himself a disappointing overall performance rating of 6.54/10, making him one of the lowest-rated outfield players currently in the squad to have started more than a league game during this campaign.
Considering all of this, it doesn’t look like the Brighton loanee hasn’t done enough to convince us that the Baggies should use their option to sign him permanently, which could piss off a lot of West Brom fans if the club puts their transfer budget towards such a deal.
However, if the 22-year-old can end his season strong in terms of performance, it might lead some fans to think he could still be an important figure for the team in the future, but only if he gets away with it. improved.
