West Brom Rumours


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.




02 Feb 2015 16:55:43
Hull City and West Brom have both had £5m bids turned down by Watford for striker Odion Ighalo.

It is expected that they would accept a bid in the region of £6-7m.



01 Feb 2015 22:35:28
Fulham striker Hugo Rodellega will join West Brom with Graham Dorrans moving to Craven cottage on loan as part of the deal, leicester City striker Chris Wood will join the cottagers as will Lens AC Midfielder Ciprien & Young aussie Massimo Luongo from Swindon.

A late loan bid for former whites CM Steve Sidwell is expected.

02 Feb 2015 00:41:28
Are you now just throwing out anything in the hope of one thing being right?

Unless Brom lose berahino, why would they want Rodellega? He's no better than ideye.

The previous rumours have been way off the mark.

Just because targets are missed & deals fall through doesn't mean they are way off the mark, very naive of you to think such

02 Feb 2015 07:23:37
You've got to find Massimo first.
He's hidden away in Australia, not taking calls.

02 Feb 2015 08:37:44
Its 5 million for Luongo and he's staying until the summer then will decide his future.

02 Feb 2015 09:46:31
Same as swapping Roberts for alli when he's linked with top level premiership clubs. That's not falling through or missed deal. That's baseless speculation

02 Feb 2015 13:25:07
No moves in only out. Khan wants to reduce the squad down. David, Ruiz and Eisfeld out.

You've let yourself down this window bb

Your nativity is hilarious to listen to, if you really knew what was going on at Fulham it would scare u.

Khan hasn't backed Symons as he is selling up in the summer, the above were legitimate targets but SK wouldn't back kit.

05 Feb 2015 07:37:28
Nice typo. I'm not into a Christmas play though.

It's not naive to point out that you are wrong and have been wrong for some time now with your rumours. I find it hilarious that you post, get it wrong and it's other people who are naive. Keep chucking out your rumours though bb, maybe one will stick

I'm not wrong at all, targets are missed by all clubs not just Fulham, SK will sell up in the summer & we will rely on the current squad minus those free to leave to mount a charge for promotion.

It will not happen, why do you think Roberts isn't playing to often? Already a fee agreed with big club - £18m with him coming back on loan.

Only 18m for Roberts?

Yes only 18m upfront but that sum increases dramatically with add ons and such.

23 Feb 2015 21:26:34
poppycok , lol

01 Mar 2015 01:03:34
Roberts said to Kit on Monday "play me more or I'm off" - kits reply " there's the door" - 18m move for Roberts to liverpool in the summer - not poppycock.





28 Jan 2015 14:12:57
Middlesbrough are being linked with both Graham Dorrens of West Brom and Tom Ince at Hull.

To be honest I can't see how either would fit in as Boro don't need another Midfielder of Winger.

It could be just hype but Sky are reporting it.

Personally I can't see anymore business being done this January unless we let someone go first.

28 Jan 2015 16:30:43
There won't be any more major business this January, maybe one or two players in on loan later on, Ince and the likes but no more signings. We've signed well and there's every possibility we'll finish the season in the top two if we keep up our winning form of late. In Aitor we trust

01 Feb 2015 15:08:52
Albert staying none going



28 Jan 2015 06:23:26
Its is understood that West Bromwich Albion are prepared to pay £4m and Graham Dorrans for Middlesbrough left back George Friend, the player is not keen on the deal and Boro have held firm sp far.

It would have to be silly money for him to leave and Dorrans isn't that good

28 Jan 2015 12:28:39
I'd tell them to forget Dorrans and offer over six then I'd consider it maybe

28 Jan 2015 13:27:01
Adam Forshaw is a definite signing and will be around the £2million mark, and Dorrans is also a possibility considering that he is out of favour at West Brom, however, there are several clubs interested in signing him with a view to a permanent buy at the end of the loan deal. It is heard that Birmingham and Middlesbrough are the two clus at the head of the race. We are also keeping track of a teenage sensation, I heard he was coming in to take Woodgate's place as Woodgate is getting on a bit now. However, unfortunately, I haven't been given any other information about this teenage sensation, anyone have any ideas?

29 Jan 2015 09:41:31
I don't think a teenage sensation would be signing for Middlesbrough

29 Jan 2015 15:19:04
Maybe he thinks he wouldn't get game time at a prem team so he wants to come to the best team outside the prem





27 Jan 2015 23:28:49
It is understood that Forshaw emerged as Boro's preferred option after they were priced out of a move for West Bromwich Albion's James Morrison.

28 Jan 2015 05:39:32
We weren't in for Morrison. Somebody on here just made it up. Forshaw is a quality signing in my opinion. Gives competition to Leadbitter and Clayton



23 Jan 2015 17:41:36
Fulham are close to competeing a loan move for Swansea's Jazz Richards & are also in talks to bring in -

Robert Huth - on loan from Stoke

Graham Dorrans - 2.3m from West Brom

Chris Baird - free ( take over current West brom contract)

Sidwell - Loan from Stoke

Sarki - pacey winger who plays in Poland



23 Jan 2015 16:35:56
Fulham are planning to beat Burnley to the signing of West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans.
The Whites are also looking at potential loan deals for former defender Chris Baird and Stoke defender Robert Huth.



13 Jan 2015 09:59:04
Looks like Aldershot Town striker Brett Williams is off north of the border with St Mirren and St Johnstone keen to take the hitman.

Troy Deeney of Watford on WBA radara.

Gosport Boro striker Matt Paterson being courted by Portsmouth, Oxford, Swindon and now Crawley.

Andy Johnson will snub Wycombe and sign for Luton.

And finally, Rotherham's Fabian Brandy will sign for Rochdale.


14 Jan 2015 13:30:38
quick re-brief of our targets:
Fernando Pacheco - becoming more likely, yet it is getting even quieter as there isn't much notice to this, and it is claimed to be on a loan until the end of the season.
Juan Muniz - all rounded midfielder who can easily give Tomlin a run for his place and is very competitive
Niguez - basically a full on, but younger, version of Whitehead (who is way past his peak in my opinion)

Our right back solution has been resurrected by the arrival of Tomas Kalas so there won't be any more arrivals for the Right back spot, however, two new targets who are under the radar from media have been linked with Boro. These are Tom Cairney who has been mentioned now and again, but nothing has went ahead just yet ( ). The second target is a versatile centre back who can also play in midfield, his name is Marios Oikonomou and he is only 22 years old, so has time to improve even further. He has played for Greece Under 21s and has a good relationship with Dimi Konstantopolous, who we could use to persuade Oikonomou to come to Middlesbrough.

Extra: Mark Hughes has let Robert Huth go out on loan to a Championship club. Watford are winning the race at the moment, but 2 other Football League clubs are interested.

14 Jan 2015 15:21:52
Fernando Pacheco on a loan until the end of the season may have become even more quiet, but it is still going on and is looking increasingly likely as Konstantopolous turns 37, we have Mejias as our back up at the moment and Karanka is concerned that if we get promoted, how will they cope?.

I know we still have Ripley, but he still needs experience, as that is beneficial to both him and the club, look at how Reach and Gibson turned out, an influential duo who play a significant part in Karanka's future plans.

Niguez (also known as Jony) is a younger kind of version of Whitehead is way past his peak, whereas Muniz is a more all-rounded midfielder.

14 Jan 2015 15:24:07
My mate from whom I get my information was here and I put the above names to him. Pacheco remains a target but Ivan Perez Munoz advises that Mejias outshone Pacheco at Madrid, my friend wouldn't be surprised if we swooped for a more experienced goalie whilst he knows Aitor to be an admirer of Muniz and Niguez but not interested in signing either yet (I must stress the yet apparently). He has heard nothing of Cairney but says it could be possible. There is no interest in Oikonomou though my friend is an admirer of his, Karanka has no awareness of the player. Fran Merida deal could be back on after Milos Veljkovic's loan extension failed.

15 Jan 2015 07:08:38
Fernando Pacheco is a younger keeper than Mejias, and Mejias hasn't really proven himself to be an adequate keeper who will be able to replace Konstantopolous in the near future.

Oikonomou is a 22 year old central defender who is well known by Dimi Konstantopolous as they have played in the Greece National acedemy side together, (Oikonomou was just 16 then).

Cairney is a target that is going under the radar as there has been hardly, or no mention at all, yet it is a likely possibility he could arrive in Teesside considering Veljkovic has went back to Spurs, and Whitehead seemingly past his peak and seems to be more fitted to our right back role, thus leaving just Clayton, Leadbitter and our young future prospect Bryn Morris as our only Centre midfielders. Muniz and Niguez are also potential targets to arrive in teesside.

Extra: I've been reading the Evening Gazette and it is suggested that an Emerson-type of midfielder is set to arrive on Teesside. Anyone got any idea who this could be?

Jacob Ross

15 Jan 2015 16:19:09
Oikonomou and Dimi did not play together in the Greek youth teams because Dimi would have been ineligible to do so six years ago as he would have been 31. Furthermore, Cairney is not someone who the club have expressed an interest in but I personally would love to see him at the Riverside. Muniz and Niguez cannot be called targets yet as Boro have no interest in actually signing them, but Karanka does admire the players. As for the Emerson article in the gazette you have misunderstood. If Pacheco does come in it will be if/when Mejias departs so Pacheco can be second choice goalkeeper

I meant like player/coach type, you know what I mean, sorry about that little mix up.
And no I have not misunderstood the Emerson article as Karanka is looking for a loanee who can replace Milos Veljkovic.
I think everyone would love Tom Cairney at the Riverside! He is a good player and even though it is not out with the media, Karanka isn't impressed with Mejias, so is considering whether it'll be more beneficial to send him out on loan to free up wages or to sell him permanently to free the transfer budget up as well as the wages. What would you do if you were Karanka?

18 Jan 2015 16:35:23
Oh I thought you meant that their was some kind of friendship between the two Greeks. In fact, it's quite probable that the two have never met. The Emerson article was in no way a reference to any potential incomer, it was just to remember a fantastic player. Cairney, ideal signing. Karanka has said he will not sign a new first choice goalkeeper until the summer, but if whether Mejias is sold or loaned out, Pacheco would be the replacement second choice. If I were Karanka I'd pack the poor lad back of to Spain where he is more comfortable



11 Jan 2015 14:12:30
As said before WBA are interested in Deeney, however Swansea are also said to be interested if/when Bony goes.



10 Jan 2015 10:33:31
West Brom have made an approach for Watford striker Troy Deeney prompting speculation that Saido Berahino is on the way out.



07 Jan 2015 14:15:30
West Brom will sign Robert Huth in next few days.



07 Jan 2015 06:51:48
Millwall boss Ian Holloway will make an offer to Dundee United winger Gary Mackay-Steven whose contract is up in the summer. The Scottish international has stated previously that he would like to play in England but United are hopeful he will sign a new contract. Swansea, West Brom and league 1 side Sheffield United are also interested but Holloway hopes he can convince him to join the South London club & could try to push it through this month has the Lions battle relegation in the Championship



29 Dec 2014 10:24:49
Ipswich, Middlesborough and West Brom are considering a bid for Brentford's Moses Odubajo. Moses has impressed at right back this season but will be in danger of losing his place when Alan McCormack is back from injury so will be a perfect chance to tempt him away with a guarentee of first team football.

Hope this isn't true Boro have enough full backs and wingers as it is

12 Jan 2015 11:12:59
I doubt it is true. When McCormack was fit, moses was playing on the wing so I assume he will just move back there.

15 Jan 2015 16:20:45
Good. We don't need to start signing substandard players now. We're in a promotion race for goodness sakes.

Burnley to sign Crystal Palace defender Adrian Marriapa this week after failing to sign WBA defender Craig Dawson

11 Aug 2014 16:53:00
Dont be silly, burnley have no chance of signing him



04 Aug 2014 10:44:47
Oxford united are trying to hijack newports attempts to bring former west brom Cardiff and Norwich man rob Earnshaw. Oxford are desperate for a striker and Earnshaw fits the bill. It's thought though that a move to wales is what the former welsh international would favour



31 Jul 2014 16:04:20
West Brom are mulling over Burnleys latest bid for Defender Craig Dawson. Burnley are hoping to sign Dawson before next week



31 Jul 2014 04:40:13

Expect Dawson deal to be finally concluded this week, when the Clarets finally match WBA asking price of 2. 5



17 Jul 2014 20:51:24
burnley to up there bid to 2m for dawson. can't see this one coming off. west brom want 500k more

Dawson will be signing for Burnley.

Dawson is going to put in another transfer request. He wants to join Burnley because he has more chance of first team football.

Mekwad I hope your right

Looks like you was right about Dawson future England player joining burnley for 2.5 mill lol not a chance pal

Plus west brom want a lot more than 2.5 mill that would only start talks



16 Jul 2014 11:18:59
Burnley have had a 1.5 million pound bid rejected from West Brom for Craig Dawson. The player wants to leave but West Brom won't let him go.

He doesn't want to leave, he wants to play. If Burnley want him they need to stump up the required fee. 24 year old centre half with Prem experience? £1.5m? Sheffield Utd want £3m plus for MacGuire!

West Brom have now said 2.5 million and they will consider



13 Jul 2014 14:25:22
Burnley have moved on from Craig Dawson and Craig Bryson after financial issues blew both deals (West Brom asked too much, and Derby giving Bryson a new contract Burnley could not compete with).

The Clarets are now in talks with Wigan over the signing of Ivan Ramis. Wigan want around £2.5 million for the Spaniard. Burnley have also initiated discussions with Nottingham Forest over the signing of Henri Lansbury, with the player keen to get back to the Premier League. There is currently a large gap between what Burnley are willing to pay and what Forest want however.

Ramis would be a good signing for us.



13 Jul 2014 13:36:37
Derby are most likely to get George Throne deal done in the next two to three weeks. West Brom are holding out for 5 million which Derby are expected to meet.



13 Jul 2014 09:14:18
West brom set to sign Liverpool right back andre wisdom in the next few days

Not a bad loan signing



11 Jul 2014 09:43:34

Craig Dawson to sign for Burnley on 3 year deal from westbrom

02 Jul 2014 13:33:29
Stoke City and West Brom are battling it out to sign Monaco forward Emmanuel Riviere with Monaco wanting £6 million for the French Striker

Southampton have bid £8 million for Feyenoord striker Graziano Pelle however expect competition from West Ham and Crystal Palace

Celtic look favourites to sign Stoke and Ireland international Jonathon Walters in a £3million deal. The hard-working forward has been deemed surplus to requirements at Stoke City and Is set to be sold however Celtic expect strong competition from Crystal Palace

Burnley, Crystal Palace, QPR and West Brom all look to set to battle it out for £5 million rated Watford Forward Troy Deeney who is looking for a move to BPL

Real Madrid are looking at a potential deal for Stoke City Goalkeeper Asmir Begovic who recently turned out for Bosnia in Brazil

02 Jul 2014 15:20:22
Since when was Deeney rated at £5m?

02 Jul 2014 18:11:58
Deeney is definitely rated at above £5 mil, as Watford have already rejected a £5 mil offer from Norwich. Also, Troy isn't 'looking for a move' i.e. he doesn't actively want to leave, but if the club accept an offer then he will probably leave. General consensus is that Deeney is worth between £6-10 mil, with 6 being the absolute lowest, and 10 being the absolute highest. More likely to be 7 or 8 mil though.

Troy Deeney isn't worth £5 million. Not proven at the highest level.

Deeney might not be proven, but he is definitely good at championship level, and if he isn't too bothered about wanting to move, then Watford will want to price him as high as possible. If you remeber Austin was sold for around 4.7m and he wasn't proven at the highest level either. (Yes QPR were a championship side, but with their money they wanted immediate promotion, which they got. So Austin was an investment in the hope he can take his scoring to the next level. )

Austin, cost 4 million. And was a main reason why we got promoted. priceless!
Your kidding yourself if you think Deeney doesn't want to play in the premiership.

03 Jul 2014 11:43:59
If Deeney isn't worth £4M then whay have both Norwich and Burnley been turned down with £5M bids and Burnley are looking at submitting a £6M bid?
Deeney does want to play in the Premier League, but AFAIK is not looking for a move and is not the type of person who will force a move.

Your reading too many papers mate.
Deeney will not being going up North or to another championship outfit.

-Jimrangers69. Sorry I got my figure wrong (I was writing from a faulty memory). But unless a club like burnley is prepared to take a risk and sign Deeney, then where is the experience at the highest level coming from? He has to be given the chanc to prove himself. However, I do agree that Deeney will be very tempted by the opportunity to play in the premiership, no matter what he previously said. Anyway if the gable did pay off, and Deeney is a success, the 5m isn't to bad for a good player, if it turns out to be a flop then its a big chunk of money gone. We'll just have to wait and see what business Dyche gets up to!

14 Jul 2014 22:39:29
In light of the McCormack deal, Deeney will go for no less than £9m, probably more, with add-ons and a sell-on fee. Of course, no-one will take this offer (not looking at the figures being bandied about at the moment anyway) so Deeney will probably stay at the Vic this summer. I say this because McCormack is about 2 years older than Deeney, has less goals over the past 2 seasons AND had handed in a transfer request. Pretty funny how some people valued Deeney at £5m or even less!



01 Jul 2014 18:01:31
Expect a busy couple of weeks at West Brom, with Aaron Cresswell, Gareth McCleary and Emmanuel Riviere to sign.
