West Brom player closes in on Hawthorns departure



West Bromwich Albion defender Allan Nyom is currently in Spain as he closes in on a move to Getafe, according to journalist Matt Wilson.

The 31-year-old made two Championship appearances for West Brom at the start of last season, before joining Spanish club Leganes on a season-long loan deal in August.

The right-back is now close to completing a permanent move to Spain with Getafe, with the move expected to be completed soon.

West Brom have already signed a replacement for Nyon, with Darnell Furlong joining from Queens Park Rangers on a four-year deal this afternoon, for a reported fee of £1.5m.

Wilson confirmed that Furlong has already taken Nyom’s number two shirt, which suggests that the deal is all-but done, with West Brom set to receive a small fee for the player.

The defender made 25 appearances for Leganes in all competitions last season, scoring one goal, which came in a 1-1 draw against Getafe in La Liga.

The Verdict

It’s been quite a week for West Brom in the transfer market, with new head coach Slaven Bilic hoping to build a team that can challenge for automatic promotion next season.

Nyom is clearly not in Bilic’s plans for next season, so it makes perfect sense for him to leave the club this summer and selling him with allow West Brom to trim their wage bill slightly.

With the arrival of Furlong and the club closing in on the loan signing of Mason Holgate, Nyom was always going to struggle for game time at the Hawthorns next season.

He did well while on loan at Leganes last season though and hopefully the defender will be able to make another impact in La Liga next season with Getafe.
