West Bromwich Albion are continuing to add to their squad through the acquisition of free agents and it appears that Darren Moore could be about to add another one to their ranks.
According to Rob Dorsett, Bakary Sako is expected to sign a short-term deal with the Baggies later this week.
#wba will complete the signing of ex #wwfc forward Bakary Sako this week and hope to register him in time to be available v #pnefc on Saturday. Moore wanted to be sure of his fitness before short-term deal offered.

The Sky Sports reporter has stated that The Hawthorns outfit hope to be able to register the 30-year-old in time for their match against Preston North End on Saturday.
The Mali international has been a free agent throughout the summer after his contract at Crystal Palace expired and had a number of interested sides thought to be keen on him.
West Brom have been performing well in the Championship so far and they will be hoping Sako can add to the attacking displays the likes of Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez have already produced.
West Brom have been looking to use the transfer market for free agents effectively and with the expected arrival of Sako, it would appear that they have done so.
Moore has already added Wes Hoolahan to his ranks, whilst the addition of Sako would be another experienced Championship attacker to their arsenal.
It remains to be seen how often, or in what capacity, the 30-year-old will be used, with so many players currently playing well, but he should be a solid acquisition nonetheless.
