The Express and Star have reported that West Brom are close to agreeing a £3.5m deal for Swansea centre-back Kyle Bartley.
The Manchester-born man made just 12 appearances in all competitions for the Swans last season after losing his place following time out of the side because of a knee injury. Now 27 years old, he will no doubt be looking for more regular first-team football which may see him leave the Liberty Stadium.
Baggies manager Darren Moore will have to bring new centre-backs to the Hawthorns this summer, with Jonny Evans joining Leicester, Gareth McAuley being released and Craig Dawson refusing to train as he pushes for a move back to the Premier League.
West Brom fans will also be hoping that they can keep hold of Egyptian Ahmed Hegazi, who has a £10m release clause in his contract, in order to ensure they have the meanest defence in the Championship.
For now though, they have been expressing their opinions on Bartley’s potential transfer. Check out some of the best reactions below.
All goes well reading what Leeds fans think of Kyle Bartley should we get it over the line , seems a leader to 👍 #wba

Good news: West Brom are in advanced talks to sign Kyle Bartley for 3.5 milion.
Even better news: McClean has threw a tantrum and is trying to push a move away from The Hawthorns.#WBA

Just had a quick look into Kyle Bartley. He’s a strange one, seems to have had a really good season at Leeds but not played all that much anywhere else and he’s now 27. Some genuine reasons for concern but hopefully if he does sign he can put that to bed #wba
