Friday turned out to be quite the day for West Bromwich Albion as the signing of Kenneth Zohore from Cardiff was confirmed whilst they also reportedly agreed on a fee for Semi Ajayi.
Alan Nixon was the first to report Albion’s interest in the 25-year-old before Express & Star’s Matt Wilson confirmed on Twiter that a fee had been agreed between the Baggies and Rotherham.

A price of £1.5m seems incredibly low and as a result, it left fans of West Brom absolutely delighted with the business their club was trying to conclude.
One fan shared that it was exactly the type of move they needed to be doing whilst another called the fee daylight robbery.
A further supporter took to Twitter to claim that it was a potential bargain. One individual took a more analytical look, expressing that he was brilliant when West Brom played them away from home.
Ajayi was in superb form for Rotherham last season, scoring seven goals from midfield after being pushed into a holding role by Paul Warne.
Also boasting the ability to play in defence, his versatility is a major strength.
Here’s the best of the reaction.
This is exactly the type of business we need to be doing. Buying the best from teams below us for decent prices. Impressive performances the 2 times I saw him against us.

Finally some really good news. Oluwasemilogo Adesewo Ibidapo Ajayi (that’s his full name) was also on Charlton’s and Arsenal’s books earlier on in his career. There definitely must be more of him to come.

He was brilliant when we played them away. Lost count of the tackles and interceptions he made. Remember turning to my brother wound up at the number of attacks he broke up. Would be a great signing.
