The promotion dream is well and truly alive for West Brom having performed very well for the majority of the season. Where last season must have been a truly depressing watch, Darren Moore’s side look fun. Simply put, supporting the Baggies must be fun again. Phew.
Even after suffering a big loss to Leeds, they’ll surely remain one of the favourites to return straight back into the Premier League, a testament to how well Darren Moore has done in his first full season in charge. Nobody is going to write them off and, if they do, it’ll be at their own peril.
Still, plenty of goals might have been scored but, defensively, the Baggies have been found out on occasion, something that needs to change whether or not they gain a move back into the top flight.
One player who if he stayed fit, could definitely help that cause and that’s West Ham’s Sam Byram.
Byram, (who is valued at £3.6 million on Transfermarkt) had started the season positivity for Nottingham Forest, before that all came crashing down after playing just three games for his loan club.
After sustaining a serious injury, Byram was sent back to West Ham, where he is getting treatment, waiting for his chance to get back out onto the pitch. He has become a forgotten man in football but still is just 25-year-old, which proves he has plenty of time to find another club and become a regular there.
Mason Holgate has been a good option for West Brom since he joined on-loan but it’s unknown as to whether or not he will stay past the season.
The capture of Sam Byram – who only has one year left on his contract – would stop the loss of Mason Holgate becoming such a problem for the Baggies and you never know could even go above and beyond what the Everton loanee has done.
They could relaunch themselves together.
West Brom fans, you were linked with Sam Byram way back in 2013, would you be keen on signing him now? If so, why not? Join the discussion by commenting below…
