West Brom lining up move for Championship star as James McClean replacement



West Bromwich Albion will move for Romaine Sawyers if James McClean leaves, according to the print edition of The Daily Mail via the Sky Sports News Paper Talk page.

McClean is thought to be attracting interest from Stoke City and if he completes this move, West Brom will look to replace him with Sawyers.

West Brom are set to discipline McClean for missing pre-season training in order to force through his exit, shortly after goalkeeper Ben Foster (now at Watford) and defender Craig Dawson were punished for the same thing.

The Irish winger is hoping to leave The Hawthorns and West Brom have already lined up his successor.

Sawyers has been at Brentford for two seasons now, scoring eight goals in 89 games since his switch from Walsall back in summer 2016.

The 26-year-old – who is a full international for Saint Kitts and Nevis – actually started his career at West Brom but never made an appearance for the Baggies before moving to West Midlands neighbours Walsall.

The Verdict

Sawyers is a top talent but he is far from the finished article.

If West Brom can take his potential and get him to the next level, then they are dealing with a very good Championship player.

McClean will be no big loss as West Brom do not want people that do not want to be at the club.
