West Brom: Cedric Kipre set to leave Hawthorns this summer

West Brom: Cedric Kipre set to leave Hawthorns this summer -Championship News

West Bromwich Albion are reportedly likely to listen to offers for defender Cedric Kipre during the upcoming transfer window, according to BirminghamLive.

The Lowdown: Growing frustration

The 25-year-old first made the move to the Hawthorns from Wigan Athletic two years ago for a fee believed to be in the region of £900k, but having grown frustrated at his lack of opportunities, joined Belgian Pro League side Charleroi on loan for the second half of the 2020/21 season.

It would now appear that two clubs in particular are said to be interested in securing the Frenchman’s services, which increases the possibility that he will be departing the Midlands outfit this summer.

The Latest: Kipre ‘in discussions’ with West Brom

In a new article published by BirminghamLive, it’s claimed that Kipre and his representatives have been ‘in discussions’ with the West Brom hierarchy behind the scenes, with a parting of ways now seeming ‘likely’.

Europa League finalists Rangers are believed to have ‘tracked’ the centre-back since his spell at Motherwell, whilst newly relegated Norwich City are also ‘showing an interest’, with the player ‘on the Canaries’ radar’.

The source further states that Steve Bruce is planning to rebuild his squad ahead of the start of next season, meaning that the colossus is ‘set to make way’ to make room for new additions.

The Verdict: Lack of game time

It comes as no surprise to see Kipre looking for a move away from the Baggies, especially considering the fact that he hasn’t been given a look in since Bruce took charge.

The 6 foot 3 talisman was a regular feature of Valerien Ismael’s match-day squad prior to his sacking, having started 16 games across all competitions, but following the arrival of the 61-year-old back in February, has made zero appearances under the new boss.

Kipre, who was once dubbed an “assassin” and “Rolls-Royce” by former West Brom coach Tommy Wright, clearly has a lot of potential still to give, but it seems as though the next chapter of his career will be starting somewhere far away from the Hawthorns.
