West Brom, on the whole, will be fairly happy with their January window dealings, having brought in enough quality to cement their promotion hopes.
Darren Moore may have felt hard done by at the start of the window, when their promotion hopes threatened to be endangered by the loss of loan star Harvey Barnes.
The talented youngster was re-called by his parent club after a string of brilliant performances on-loan with the Baggies.
It came as no surprise but although they did bring in other quality, none quite live up to the role and position Harvey Barnes played, like Stoke City’s Bojan would have.
Bojan, (who is valued at £1.3 million on Transfermarkt) is a player who could have filled the void Harvey Barnes left extremely well, with the two alike with their nimble nature and neat touches of the ball.
The Spaniard has a vast amount of experience as well, having played all over Europe for a number of very successful teams.
Though the one criticism some may have had over the 28-year-old is that he failed to settle down with one club in particular, something that could have been possible with a move to West Brom.
Bojan has started just three games for Stoke this season and for a player of his age, supposedly at the peak of their footballing ability, he isn’t getting the match-time needed to be a help for his side.
It was reported (by the Sun via HITC) that the Baggies were planning to bring Bojan in on-loan, then have the option to sign him permanently in the summer, though a swoop ultimately failed.
Since that deal didn’t materialise though, West Brom must face facts and continue on without who could have done a stern job for them.
