How well do you know West Brom's transfer business? First up, how much did Sam Johnstone cost in 2018? *Fees from Transfermarkt*

However, that deal will put an end to the Baggies’ interest in signing Maitland-Niles on loan until the end of the campaign.

Disappointing

While Yokuslu may be a good player, Maitland-Niles would have perhaps been a more astute signing. The 23-year-old has plenty of Premier League experience to his name, and has experience of winning trophies with Arsenal.

Who would you rather have signed?

Valued at £16.2m (Transfermarkt), a loan deal would be the only option for the Baggies, and the Gunners starlet’s versatility could have provided a big boost to Big Sam’s squad depth.

Whether Yokuslu will prove to be the better signing remains to be seen – Allardyce will be hoping he hits the ground running at the Hawthorns.

In other news, West Brom failed in a bid for this midfielder.
