Slaven Bilic continues to work hard at West Brom as he prepares his new Baggies squad for the upcoming campaign. Today’s West Brom transfer roundup includes a positive update in the pursuit of a Croatian playmaker, interest in a former Aston Villa defender and an accepted offer for one of the club’s centre-backs.
Portuguese outlet Record is reporting that Benfica’s Filip Krovinovic is set to join West Brom on loan this season. The eventual fee could cost the Midlands club €800,000 (£717,000) overall if the Baggies gain promotion.
After the Sun on Sunday (via Football League World), claimed West Brom are interested in taking Alan Hutton to the Hawthorns, Express and Star were quick to report otherwise – ruling out a move for the former Aston Villa defender. They want younger players on cheaper wages.
Defender Craig Dawson has left West Brom to join Watford is has been confirmed. The Hornets have signed the 29-year-old centre-back on a four-year deal. Dawson played 225 games for the Baggies, scoring 15 goals.
