Fans of West Bromwich Albion have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed a report that claims the club are interested in Leicester City midfielder Hamza Choudhury.
According to a report by The Telegraph, Sam Allardyce’s side are ‘leading the race’ to sign Choudhury, with the Baggies being the club ‘most likely to land’ the £7.2 million-rated 23-year-old ‘if a deal is struck for him to leave Leicester City’ in January.
The report continues by claiming that the Foxes will only allow the defensive midfielder to leave ‘on a permanent deal’, meaning that, should West Brom wish the sign the former England U21 international, a loan bid will not likely be accepted.
And, after WBA Report relayed this report on Twitter, fans of the Baggies flocked to have their say on the matter, with many questioning how their club could afford a move for Choudhury this month.
Would Choudhury be a good signing for West Brom?
So, what exactly did these West Bromwich Albion fans have to say in reaction to their club’s link with a move for Hamza Choudhury?
“If it’s not a loan, then I don’t think it’ll happen (hope I’m wrong), with our name being linked, it’s probably to generate more money out of a buying club…”
“I can’t imagine he’d be very cheap unless he’s out of contract this summer. Can’t see us buying him, to be honest. Unless we sell someone for a similar amount.”
“In which case, we’re not leading the chase, as we have no money to spend on him.”
“Someone’s leaving if he’s coming in on a perm…no way we’re forking out for him”
“We’re not in the race then.”
“He ain’t coming here then. We’ve got no money to spend”
“Permanent? No chance”
