West Brom manager Darren Moore is considering a move for out-of-favour defender Tyron Mings of Bournemouth, as he looks to bolster his squad to maintain his side’s promotion challenge over the second half of the season, according to a report in the Birmingham Mail.
Moore though, will face competition from Championship rivals Aston Villa and Leeds United for the 6ft 5 defender’s signature, who has only made seven appearances in all competitions for the Cherries this season.
So would Mings prove a good signing for the Baggies?
“It would be a good signing, but the form of Kieran Gibbs makes it hard for him to steal the left-wing back spot.
“Unless Moore thinks to use him more as a centre-back or further forward, it could be a deal to add to the squad instead of improving their first team.
“It would be a class signing, but I don’t see where he would fit in.”
“It seems a bit pointless.
“In Dawson, Hegazi and Bartley they have three top Championship centre-backs and maybe even Premier League quality.
“Considering West Brom’s tricky position this month I would rather see them prioritise key areas.”
“He’d be a class signing.
“They’re in need of some stability at the back.
“He wouldn’t be as effective at wing back though, so he’d be restricted to the middle of defence at the Hawthorns.
“Still a good target though.”
“He would be a useful addition to the West Brom squad.
“Darren Moore needs defensive reinforcements and Mings would be a versatile option to have in the Baggies team.
“Mings is proven in the Championship and has a point to prove after a lack of game time recently in the Premier League with Bournemouth.”
