West Bromwich Albion have been linked with a move for Blackpool striker Jerry Yates, as reported by The72.
Enjoying a fantastic 2020/21 season, the 24-year-old played a major role in the Seasiders’ successful Sky Bet League One promotion bid as he registered 32 goal contributions from 54 games in all competitions; 23 goals and nine assists [Transfermarkt].
Bristol City, Blackburn Rovers and Nottingham Forest are all also said to be keen on the striker, who could be available for around £5million to potential suitors [The Sun].
Would Yates be a good signing for WBA?
Yates has averaged around 1.9 shots per every 90 minutes across the last year, demonstrating his willingness to regularly propel himself to the forefront of attacking play [WhoScored].
Still manager-less after the departure of Sam Allardyce from the Hawthorns last month and lacking direction as a club [BBC], there is little surprise loads of Baggies fans took to Twitter to share their concern at these latest developments.
West Brom fans react:
Replying to popular West Bromwich Albion outlet WBA Report, here is what some of the fans had to say about the news:
“Can’t see any signings being made until we have a new head coach in the dugout”
