West Brom interested in Josh Windass

West Bromwich Albion have been preparing for life in the Championship this summer as they look to bounce back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

The Baggies were disappointing in the top-flight last season, despite a late revival under Darren Moore and will want to escape the second-tier as quickly as possible.

Things could be difficult for them initially as they will be without a number of their star players, with a host of them having decided that they do not want to remain at The Hawthorns.

However, Moore has already been busy in the transfer market, making sure that he gives his side the best chance they can to be in the right part of the division when the season comes to an end next May.

He has already signed Sam Johnstone, Jonathan Bond, Kyle Bartley and brought Harvey Barnes on loan from Leicester City, however, it looks as though the manager is keen on bolstering his attacking options.

According to a report in the Daily Mail, the Baggies are believed to be keen on bringing Rangers’ Josh Windass back south of the border. The winger is thought to be concerned about his future under Steven Gerrard and could consider a move back to England.

West Brom are not the only side thought to be considering a move for him, with the likes of Aston Villa, Burnley and West Ham United all credited with an interest.

The Verdict:

Windass could be a smart signing by West Brom this summer as they look to add to their attacking options.

The Rangers man could replace the likes of Nacer Chadli in the squad, with the Belgium international keen on a move away from the Hawthorns.

However, there would be a risk with the young Englishman, as he has not proven himself at the Championship level before, although having played in the Scottish Premiership, there would be a sense of confidence that he can adapt to the style of play easily.
