West Bromwich Albion could reportedly pip Birmingham City to Manchester United forward Tahith Chong.
The Lowdown: Chong profiled
It looks like he could be on the move once again, with a late switch to the Baggies being mooted.
The Latest: West Brom keen
According to journalist Darren Witcoop, Chong could be moving to The Hawthorns instead of making a return to St Andrew’s with Birmingham.
The reporter said that ‘Chong could now be heading to West Brom on loan rather than returning to St Andrew’s’.
However, Fabrizio Romano has since confirmed that Chong will rejoin Birmingham with a medical already planned.
The Verdict: Worth a go
Hijacking a deal is always an exciting prospect, especially on deadline day, so a move for the 22-year-old was worth a go. Chong would have given Steve Bruce another versatile attacking option, something which appears needed at The Hawthorns with Albion picking up just eight points from their opening seven Championship games.
They have scored just 11 times in the league so far this term, so hopefully, the club will be on the hunt for a new forward instead of Chong.
