West Brom working on adding a right-back

West Bromwich Albion are continuing to work on making an addition to their squad, despite the transfer window being slammed shut on Thursday.

The Baggies are no longer allowed to make any permanent transfers until January, however, they are still able to look for new recruits in the loan market until the end of August, and it appears they could be about to use that option.

According to Matt Wilson, who is a journalist for the Express and Star, West Brom are currently working on bringing a right-back to The Hawthorns, with Darren Moore keen to bolster his defence.

The journalist has also made the claim that a deal for someone could be relatively simple as a contract would need just a slight change to the way it is worded.

The Verdict:

West Brom have so far struggled in their opening two Championship games, having been beaten with a late goal against Bolton Wanderers, whilst they rescued a late point against Nottingham Forest.

Moore’s side will need some strengthening at the back after Gareth McAuley and Jonny Evans both departed in the summer, although they did manage to keep Craig Dawson at the club, with Kyle Bartley joining them.

Allan Nyom is the Baggies only recognised right-back, however, his performances have been far from the standard needed in the Championship and West Brom will be hoping some talented men are made available for loans over the course of August.
