West Bromwich Albion fans will be hoping for an upturn in form after losing out to a couple of promotion-chasing sides, with today’s draw certainly not helping their promotion pursuit.
Darren Moore has worked wonders in recent transfer windows as he’s managed to secure the services of a number of impressive players, including the likes of Dwight Gayle, Mason Holgate, Jefferson Montero and Jacob Murphy.
And, supporters will be delighted to see that their side are already looking towards the summer transfer window, as according to Birmingham Live (via Yorkshire Post), West Brom will try to sign Holgate and Gayle permanently if they achieve promotion to the Premier League.
Gayle has been hugely impressive at the Hawthorns in the current campaign as he’s produced 16 goals and seven assists, which has had a big impact on their promotion chances.
Many fans may disagree, but Moore would be wasting Lai Guochuan’s money if he decides to bring Gayle to the Hawthorns permanently as he’s had previous opportunities in the Premier League from his time at Crystal Palace and Newcastle United, but he failed to handle the pressure and posed very little threat.
So, the Baggies would be better off looking at a proven striker who can ensure a consistent flow of goals, as supporters will be well aware of how crucial having a constant flow of goals is in the top-flight.
West Bromwich Albion fans, would you want to see Gayle sign Permanently? Surely there’re better attacking options out there…
