West Brom head into the summer transfer window looking to build on another solid season in the Premier League under Tony Pulis.
The Baggies secured a top ten finish to cement another excellent season and despite them not being everyone’s cup of tea in terms of playing style, they full deserve their place in the top flight.
The West Brom fans here in the Tavern have been delighted with how things have been going in the main, and our landlord has been sat having a few pints with them in the sun this week discussing potential signings this summer.
One player who our landlord dropped into conversation as someone he thought could do a job at the Hawthorns is Man United defender Chris Smalling.
The former Fulham man came from nowhere to suddenly be at the top level of the game at Old Trafford, and over the last few seasons has developed into a reliable central defender for both club and country.
However, there is a strong feeling that he could be moved on by United manager Jose Mourinho, who is looking to add world class talent to his squad all over the pitch.
This could have an adverse effect on Smalling, but should not put him off a career where he remains in the English top flight. A move to West Brom could be the ideal sort of break he needs, and with Jonny Evans alongside him, the Baggies could have themselves an excellent defensive pairing.
