West Bromwich Albion fans are having a tough time of things at the moment as their side does its best to throw away the automatic spot that they have held for so long in the Sky Bet Championship.
Albion have flown for much of this season but in recent weeks they have taken a real nosedive and the bounce has very much been taken out of the Baggies’ boing.
Even so, they are still in a good position and if they can just get some points on the board quickly they can look to try and scramble back to the summit of the league.
Signings between now and the end of the window on Friday night will be wanted, meanwhile, and Christian Atsu of Newcastle is apparently a target according to Football Insider.
They’ll have to try and thrash it out fairly quickly if they want him, so let’s look at what has been said on social media in the meantime:
🏴📰 | #WBA
West Brom have approached Newcastle regarding a loan deal for Christian Atsu.
Bilić is keen to strengthen his attacking options following the recent slump in form.
The deal would see the 28-year-old join on loan for the rest of the season.

to be honest I reckon he would do well in the championship.

Don't need another winger. Need a goalscorer and maybe another CB

Right team wrong player

Okay no, this one I cannot get behind. Grosicki I like, but every time I watch Atsu he looks like a rabbit in headlights whenever he gets the ball. No where near enough composure or quality decision making for me, just another Jacob Murphy. Avoid
