West Brom should bring in this relegated midfielder to replace Darren Fletcher in the middle

West Brom enjoyed one of their most successful seasons in recent years after recording an extremely respectable 10th placed finish in the Premier League in the last campaign.

Baggies fans at the Transfer Tavern are in jubilant mood, and are hoping their side can go even better next season by launching a bid for a Europa League spot.

It will be an impressive feat should Tony Pulis pull this off, and several good additions must be made to his squad this summer in order to achieve this goal.

A discussion with our landlord in the warmth of the beer garden with a cold pint in hand led to the importance of replacing Darren Fletcher who has gone to Stoke, and our landlord feels that Hull City’s Sam Clucas could be a great alternative in the middle of the park.

Clucas was extremely impressive last season in the Premier League, emerging as one of the most consistent players in Hull’s adventure.

Despite ultimately succumbing to relegation, the plaudits remained for Clucas, and remaining in the top flight will be a primary objective for the former Lincoln City midfielder this summer.

Similar in frame and stature to Fletcher, Clucas has the ability to control the midfield, and is even known to pop up with a goal or two in big matches.

7 years younger than the Scot, Clucas is hungry for success and entering the peak years of his career at the age of 26, and a move to the Hawthorns should be on the cards this summer.

Thoughts, West Brom fans? Let us know below!
