Wes Hoolahan signs for West Brom on short-term contract

Wes Hoolahan signs for West Brom on short-term contract

West Bromwich Albion will be disappointed that they didn’t manage to secure all three points against Birmingham City yesterday as they were held to a draw. 

The Baggies have certainly looked impressive under Darren Moore in the current campaign, but they did find themselves under the cosh at times at St Andrew’s. Although, the Midlands club did manage to secure the services of a midfielder recently, as according to Sky Sports, West Brom have signed Wes Hoolahan on a short-term contract.

West Brom have signed free agent midfielder Wes Hoolahan on a short-term contract.

The initial contract runs until January, at which point West Brom will have the option to extend the deal.

Indeed, Hoolahan ended a 10-year spell at Carrow Road at the end of last season and has been without a club since, but a trial during the international break convinced Darren Moore to sign the Irishman.

THE VERDICT:

Wes Hoolahan was a real servant to Norwich City Football Club and will always be remembered, but he will be a great addition to what is a promotion-hunting West Bromwich Albion side, with Championship experience possibly proving crucial come the end of the season.

Indeed, the Baggies already have Harvey Barnes in the attacking midfield role, but adding Hoolahan to their ranks will only bolster their attacking options and could help develop the youngster.
