West Brom: Baggies eye up summer move for James Bree -Championship News

West Brom are reportedly interested in completing the signing of Luton Town right-back James Bree ahead of the start of next season.

The Lowdown: Bree excels for Luton

Luton enjoyed a memorable season in 2021/22, making it into the Championship playoffs against all odds, eventually losing to Huddersfield Town in the semi-finals.

Bree was a mainstay of the team throughout the season, starting 44 of the Hatters’ 46 league matches and chipping in with six assists along the way.

With West Brom looking at summer transfer options, the 24-year-old’s name has emerged as a target.

The Latest: West Brom linked with move

According to The Express & Star‘s Joseph Masi, the Baggies are ‘considering’ a move for Bree, seeing him as a contender to come in at right-back.

The report claims that he is ‘one of the best full-backs in the Championship’, having been called ‘very good’ by Steve Bruce when he managed him at Aston Villa.

Will Steve Bruce get West Brom back into the Premier League?

The Verdict: Potential great exciting

Bree could be a fantastic summer signing for West Brom, ticking so many boxes when it comes to what they are after. He would provide competition for Darnell Furlong, while his aforementioned assist tally highlights his attacking ability.

The fact that the Englishman has already played under Bruce surely increases the chances of the Baggies making a move for him, too, with the manager clearly an admirer.
