West Brom are reportedly interested in signing winger Adam Reach this summer, following his recent exit from Sheffield Wednesday.
The Lowdown: Reach leaves Wednesday
The 28-year-old enjoyed a good career with the Owls, scoring 24 goals and registering 34 assists in 230 appearances for the club.
Reach departed Wednesday after his contract expired last month, however, and he is now on the lookout for a new club ahead of next season.
The winger has already been linked with a move to West Brom and that rumour doesn’t appear to be going away.

The Latest: West Brom keen on move
According to The Express & Star, Reach is still on the Baggies’ radar, with Valerien Ismael viewing him as a possible summer addition.
He is described as one of ‘several targets’ West Brom are looking at, with Blackburn Rovers mentioned as potential suitors, too.
The Verdict: Strong squad addition
Reach could be an ideal signing for the Baggies, bringing with him quality in the final third and an ability to play almost anywhere on the pitch – he has been deployed in as many as 11 positions throughout his career.
While the former Wednesday man wouldn’t necessarily come in as a regular starter, he would provide great squad depth due to that versatility and is capable of moments of individual brilliance.
Reach was described as a ‘top player’ by Tony Pulis during his short stint at Owls manager and he could thrive at the Hawthorns alongside superior players who have recently been plying their trade in the Premier League.
