West Brom must seal deal for Jake Hastie

West Brom must seal deal for Jake Hastie

West Bromwich Albion managed to get the better of Aston Villa earlier on today in the Midlands derby, which has boosted their automatic promotion hopes massively. 

The Baggies have arguably one of the strongest squads in the Championship, so they should have no trouble in going all the way in the current campaign.

Interestingly, it appears as if the Baggies are thinking about a possible swoop, as according to the Daily Record, West Bromwich Albion sent representatives to watch Motherwell’s Jake Hastie this month.

One of the biggest selling points is the fact that the youngster could be up for grabs for a cut price development fee at the end of the current campaign.

Indeed, the Scottish wonderkid has established himself as one of the most promising players in Scotland in the current campaign, with a very respectable three goals and one assist to his name in the Scottish Premiership. He spent the first half of the season on loan at Alloa Athletic, and he’s made a name for himself since returning.

Of course, the Baggies secured the services of Oliver Burke for a hefty fee and he never quite managed to live up to expectations, which has resulted in him moving on loan to Celtic.

So, supporters would soon forget Burke if Darren Moore manages to seal a potential bargain deal for Hastie as he has all the ingredients to become a future star. His pace, skill and dribbling ability makes him very dangerous and he’d slot right into Moore’s attacking style, with the ability to make an immediate impact at the Hawthorns.
