West Bromwich Albion fans have been reacting to the imminent signing of goalkeeper Andy Lonergan on a free transfer.
Sam Allardyce’s attempts to put his stamp on this Baggies squad is in full swing. Robert Snodgrass appears to be on the verge of completing a move to the Hawthorns, and now they are now set to bring in Lonergan on a free from Stoke City in the Championship.
It is fair to say that Lonergan has not played much recently – he has only made 34 appearances since 2016 – but having previously been on the books at Liverpool, he does at least have experience around a winning atmosphere. Still, it is hard to see this being a transfer that will excite the club’s supporters.
