West Brom: Fans react to update on Valerien Ismael -West Brom

West Bromwich Albion have run into a last minute delay in their prospective appointment of Barnsley manager Valerien Ismael over the structure of his compensation payment [Football Insider].

With pre-season fast approaching at the Hawthorns, the Baggies seem all but set to put an end to relentless managerial speculation by appointing the 45-year-old.

Would Ismael be a good appointment for West Brom?





Needing fresh impetus in order to mount a sustainable promotion bid, who better to turn to than the man who overachieved at Barnsley by unbelievably guiding them to the Sky Bet Championship play-offs against all odds [Barnsley Chronicle].

However there may be a slight snag in negotiation proceedings. Rumoured to cost a fee of around £2 million to break from his contract, Barnsley would like the money up front in order to allow Ismael to leave Oakwell [Football Insider].

Conversely, West Brom are said to be keen on paying in instalments, creating a wrangle that may require some further discussions between the clubs [Football Insider]

As you can imagine, loads of Baggies diehards took to Twitter to vent their frustration at these latest developments.

“Of course there is it’s Albion”
“Scraping round for air miles”
“What a shock”
“Makes me laugh when people say “Just pay the money” Same as when we chase a player. We value at £5M… selling club want £8M… Baggies fans shout “Pay the money…. ” We are never going to be like that. Unlike many football clubs, we don’t just throw money at it. Get used to it.”
