‘He’s utter dross’, ‘Let’s just say we pulled their pants down’ – Most West Brom fans revel in player’s departure



James McClean is closing in on a £5m switch from West Brom to Stoke City, swapping one relegated club for another as both face up to life in the Championship.

The 29-year old has undergone a medical at the bet365 Stadium, with the deal expected to be completed over the weekend.

McClean faced an internal disciplinary proceeding at West Brom for failing to attend a recent training camp and has been seemingly on his way out of the Hawthorns for a while now.

With five seasons of Premier League experience and still under 30 years old, West Brom fans could be forgiven for rueing the loss of the experienced winger, but that doesn’t seem to be the case at all.

Some have taken to Twitter to express their delight at his departure, for a range of reasons. McClean has proved to be a controversial figure throughout his career, which hasn’t entirely endeared him to Baggies fans.

Here’s a small selection of the numerous messages on social media.
