3 potential replacements as West Brom man finalises permanent exit to EFL side

Rekeem Harper will be delighted to have his future wrapped up.

The central midfielder finalised a move away from West Bromwich Albion after agreeing a deal to join Ipswich Town for a reported fee of £500,000.

Harper had struggled to establish himself at the Hawthorns but enjoyed a productive loan spell with Birmingham City last term.

The move to Ipswich will see the 21-year-old have an opportunity to really establish himself as an EFL player, however for the Baggies it means that they will now be looking for someone to fill a spot in their squad.

So who could move to the Hawthorns this summer as a midfield replacement? Here are three players who have been linked.

Matty Longstaff

The Newcastle United man is one player who has been linked.

Chronicle Live revealed that the young midfielder could be leaving the club on loan this summer as he looks to gain more first team experience with the Baggies one of the clubs linked with a move.

Given that West Brom will surely be challenging for promotion, this is a move that could be very appealing and a more-than capable replacement for Rekeem Harper.

Alex Mowatt

A player who has emerged as a target following Valerien Ismael’s appointment as head coach.

Alex Mowatt was Barnsley’s star man last term as they defied all expectations to reach the play-offs despite being expected by many to be languishing in the lower echelons of the table.

The 26-year-old would bring technical quality and leadership – two traits that would go down very well at the Hawthorns.

Kean Bryan

Another player who has been linked with a move in recent days.

Football Insider have claimed that the Baggies are planning to swoop for the Sheffield United man due to his contract expiring in the coming days.

Capable of playing in defence or midfield, Bryan could be a contender to slot into a central midfield position next term.
