West Bromwich Albion supporters in the Transfer Tavern are still pleased following their tenth place league finish last season.
Throughout the entirety of his managerial career, Tony Pulis has been widely recognised as a manager who is keen to sign experienced players.
Despite his orthodox and traditional approach to football, he always succeeds in ensuring that his sides avoid the drop, his time at West Brom has been no exception.
He’s an astute manager when signing players and the possibility of signing another accomplished talent has arisen.
Bacary Sagna’s contract at Manchester City expired this summer.
Consequently, the Frenchman is free to move to another team, and our landlord believes firmly that Tony Pulis should sign the 34-year-old.
Sagna has attained the priceless experience of playing at the highest level, having represented both Arsenal and Manchester City.
He’s also registered an impressive total of 65 international caps for France, a player of his reputation and undeniable know-how would significantly improve the standard of Pulis’ squad.
The Baggies have already lost Darren Fletcher this summer to Stoke City; they require intelligence and leadership and Sagna can provide this in abundance.
Arsenal’s former defender is incredibly dominant in aerial duels, and he also flaunts a spectacular passing ability.
His presence could help to tutor and mentor the younger players in the squad, while also strengthening West Brom’s survival chances.
At the age of 34, it is clear that Sagna’s abilities aren’t at their best level and while he doesn’t provide longevity, his arrival provides valuable knowledge, composure and experience.
Our landlord believes he would be a terrific signing.
West Brom fans, do you agree?
