Which La Liga club did West Brom sign Okay Yokuslu on loan from in the 2021 January transfer window?

In an article for The Athletic, Madeley claimed:

“Millwall’s Jed Wallace is another out-of-contract player near the top of Bruce’s wanted list.

“The 28-year-old former Wolves player can play in a central role but is arguably most adept out wide, where Bruce also wants to strengthen.”

Major Diangana upgrade

Steve Bruce is keen to improve his team to ensure that West Brom can compete for a chance at promotion back into the Premier League next season, and has made no secret about his intentions.

Bruce confirmed in an interview (via West Brom Official):

“We need a change and we need to freshen the whole place up with an influx of new players who have got a hunger and an energy to succeed and give us the lift we all need.”

With that being said, signing Wallace could be a huge addition to the team and could be the perfect upgrade on Grady Diangana for next season, especially when you consider his impact at Milwall this term.

The 28-year-old gem who was hailed “unbelievable” by current manager Gary Rowett has scored six goals and registered 12 assists, while creating 14 big chances.

He’s also made 2.5 key passes and taken 1.7 shots on average per game, an attacking output that could certainly improve the Baggies next season.

Should West Brom sign Jed Wallace?

Yes

No

No

If Wallace could offer the same consistency at The Hawthorns he would be a huge improvement on Diangana who has only scored twice and assisted once in 41 Championship appearances throughout 2021/22, with nine fewer big chances created compared to the potential new signing.

Ultimately, it is clearly going to be a busy transfer window for the Baggies and it will be interesting to see who the manager brings in this summer to improve the team.
