West Brom eyeing move for Euro 2016 defender

West Brom fans here in The Football Transfer Tavern haven’t had much to talk about over the last few seasons, let alone this window, so they have been quite pleased by the news that Pulis is looking to bring in an international defender.

According to reports from The Birmingham Mail, West Brom are considering a move for Aston Villa and Republic of Ireland defender, Ciaran Clark.

The Baggies are yet to make a bid however, and have not yet contacted Villa about the players availability.

The Republic of Ireland international is understood to have a £5m release clause in the contract he signed last summer, with Tony Pulis prepared to trigger the clause if he decides he needs defensive cover later in the summer.

With rumours circling that current central defender James Chester is tired of playing at left back, Pulis could require reinforcements if Chester decides to leave.

The 6ft1 defender might make a perfect replacement if that scenario comes to fruition, with the Euro 2016 star able to play on the left side of defence as well as centrally.

The 26-year-old has spent his entire career at Villa Park, making 134 appearances for the club and grabbing himself 7 goals.

What do you think Baggies fans?! Do you think Clark would make a good signing? Would he be an improvement on James Chester? Let us know in the comments below…
