West Brom weighing up possible move for experienced duo

West Bromwich Albion could be about to take their time over a decision about signing two free agents this summer.

According to the Birmingham Mail, the Baggies are weighing up whether to bring duo Russell Martin and Wes Hoolahan to the Hawthorns on a short-term deal.

The pair have been training with the club over the last week and it is understood Darren Moore could look to make a decision about the duo once the weekend is over.

Both were formerly of Norwich City, however, they were released by the Canaries during the transfer window, allowing them to be signed despite the deadline having passed.

The Verdict:

Both have considerable playing experience when it comes to the Championship and could look to offer Moore a number of options, as they look to win promotion back to the Premier League.

Hoolahan, who spent a decade at Carrow Road, would be seen as ideal cover for the likes of James Morrison and Harvey Barnes.

Martin, who spent time at Rangers last season, would also be able to provide some experienced cover in the defence, with the likes of Ahmed Hegazi and Kyle Bartley already in the side.
