West Bromwich Albion fans happy to see McClean leave

James McClean has been a West Bromwich Albion player since his 2015 move from Wigan Athletic.

The winger, who has earned 60 caps for the Republic of Ireland, made 34 appearances for The Hawthorns last season.

It was a doomed campaign for the Baggies, though, as they ended up dropping into the Championship after finishing at the bottom of the Premier League table.

Despite playing on the left wing or left side of a midfield pack, McClean struggled to make an impact in front of goal.

In fact, the Irishman found the back of the net on only one occasion in 30 league outings during the 2017-18 campaign.

On Tuesday, the Express & Star reported that McClean is closing in on a move to Stoke City.

The publication claims that the Baggies initially rejected a £4m bid from the Potters, who were also relegated from the top flight last season.

However, it seems that the pair are close to agreeing a fee, and judging by the reaction on Twitter, West Brom fans will not be sad to see him go.
