Jonjoe Kenny needs to move to West Brom right away

West Brom picked up their first win of the season against Norwich to carry on their mixed start to life in the Championship.

The Baggies drew their first game of the season away to Nottingham Forest before defeating the Canaries in a five-goal thriller. Jay Rodriguez grabbed a brace with Harvey Barnes, and Hal Robson-Kanu also got on the scoresheet during the 4-3 win. Darren Moore will be pleased with three points, but there is plenty of work to done to secure a return to the Premier League.

The transfer window may be closed, but Albion can still sign players on loan until the end of August. One area of concern will be right-back. Allan Nyom was dreadful against Norwich and arguably at fault for two of the goals conceded. Moore needs to sign a replacement before the end of the month.

A perfect signing could be Everton youngster – Jonjoe Kenny. Valued at £4.5m by Transfermarkt, the 21-year-old enjoyed an extended spell in the first-team during the absence of Seamus Coleman. He 19 appearances in the Premier League and three in the Europa League.

However, with Coleman back at full fitness, first-team football is likely to be scarcer this season following the arrival of Marco Silva. The Portuguese may decide a loan move is best for his development, and the Hawthorns could be the perfect destination.

Kenny would be a fantastic replacement for Nyom and solidify the Baggies’ backline. He has experience at Premier League as well as representing England at U20 level. A temporary switch to the Championship would benefit all parties.
