Exclusive: Carlton Palmer thinks West Brom can only sign Daryl Dike if Sam Johnstone exits -West Bromwich Albion Transfer Rumours

Carlton Palmer reckons Valerien Ismael will reunite with Daryl Dike at West Bromwich Albion if Sam Johnstone seals a move away from the Hawthorns.

Ismael was appointed as Sam Allardyce’s successor after the former England manager opted against remaining with the Baggies following relegation from the Premier League last season.

The 45-year-old has moved into the Hawthorns dugout after an impressive stint in charge of Barnsley, who he led into the Championship play-offs before falling short of promotion in May.

Would Dike be a good signing for West Brom?

It was during his time at the Barnsley helm where Ismael teamed up with Dike, having signed the American striker on loan from Major League Soccer outfit Orlando City in February.

The 21-year-old went on to score nine goals in 22 appearances for the Tykes and is thought to be on Ismael’s radar ahead of the transfer window closing at the end of the month.

However, former West Brom midfielder Palmer believes the Baggies will only be able to afford the United States international if goalkeeper Johnstone departs.

He exclusively told The Transfer Tavern: “He did really well at Barnsley and played really well for Ismael but a lot of things will depend on whether Sam goes.

“If he goes then I’m sure they’ll give him funds to reinvest. If Sam doesn’t go, they’re on a tight budget.”
