West Brom will be hoping that they can hold their nerve in the race for promotion into the Premier League this season under the guidance of Slaven Bilic.
The Baggies are currently sat second in the Championship table, and are six points clear of third-placed Fulham with nine matches remaining in this year’s campaign.
It could be an interesting summer transfer window ahead for Bilic’s side, as he looks to make the necessary additions to his squad ahead of potential life in the top-flight.
One player that is likely to be on their radar is West Ham winger Grady Diangana, who is currently on loan with the Baggies.
Diangana has made 22 appearances in total for West Brom this season, and has chipped in with five goals and six assists in all competitions.
It has previously been reported by Claret & Hugh that West Ham are reluctant to sell Diangana heading into the summer, after impressing out on loan this season.
Speaking in an interview with West Brom News, former Baggies striker Kevin Phillips issued his thoughts on their rumoured interest in signing Diangana permanently, and claimed that he could be worth up to £20million in the summer.
“If West Brom really want him, West Ham will slap a huge price-tag on him. If you want him, you’re going to have to pay for him so there’s another stumbling block.
“I would imagine he’s worth between £10million and £20million.”

They’ll face a tough test to land his signature on a permanent basis.
Diangana has certainly played his part in West Brom’s promotion bid this season, and he’ll be hoping he can continue to impress when competitive action gets back underway.
West Ham will know that the Baggies are eager to sign him permanently, and given his room for development, they’ll be asking for a hefty fee for his services in the summer.
If West Brom want their man though, then they’ll be doing everything they can to sign him, and I think he’s more than good enough to play in the Premier League if they hold their nerve in the race for promotion this term.
