That is according to journalist Alan Nixon, who revealed on Twitter that a third summer signing is still “in sights” for Steve Bruce and co.
Nixon was responding to the question: “You reckon West Brom will get any more signings done before season starts Al?”
To which he answered: “Two very good frees so far and the Leicester lad still in sights. Have to say that’s decent business.”
The ‘Leicester lad’ in question is of course none other than Hamza Choudhury, who could make a switch to the Hawthorns after struggling for game time at the King Power Stadium.
As if the free signings of John Swift and Wallace were not enough for the Baggies faithful, a third signing is sure to bolster the promotion hopes within the fanbase.
West Brom’s transfer business thus far has been sensational. Despite a disappointing season in the campaign just gone, they have managed to lure quality signings who have shown interest in their promotion project, with a move for Choudhury perhaps the cherry on top.
However, his game time has consistently worsened in the two seasons since, with the former England U21 international making just 16 appearances over the last two seasons combined, with just six appearances coming in the latest campaign.
At the age of 24, he may look to take inspiration from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, who managed to break into the Leicester City first-team last season, following a successful loan spell at Luton Town, and instead seize an opportunity to play for Bruce’s Baggies.
