West Brom, Swansea and Brentford in transfer hunt for defender



Championship sides West Bromwich Albion, Swansea City and Brentford are interested in signing Crawley Town right-back David Sesay, according to reports from The Sun (print edition, 25th July, page 57).

The 20-year-old has only been on the Red Devils’ books for a year, with the Sussex club signing him on a free transfer after his release from Premier League side Watford last summer.

It was a hugely disappointing campaign for Crawley in League Two last season, but Sesay really stood out at right-back, making 21 appearances in all competitions and displaying real athleticism down the flanks.

Reports from The Sun (25th July, page 57) claim that West Brom, Swansea and Brentford are all interested in Sesay, who only has one year left on his current deal and is valued at around £350,000.

West Brom have also brought in a right-back this summer, with Darnell Furlong arriving from QPR for a reported fee of £1.5m, but with Allan Nyom recently leaving the club, back-up is needed.

Brentford will also be looking to provide a back-up option to Henrik Dalsgaard, with Moses Odubajo leaving to sign for Sheffield Wednesday earlier on this summer.

The Verdict

It was only a matter of time before Sesay attracted interest from higher profile clubs up the footballing pyramid.

Having watched him on more than one occasion, you can tell that he has a massive future ahead – he often reads the game quite well, and going forward he is like lightning.

West Brom and Brentford definitely need to add back-up at right-back, and for a fee of only £350k, it’s surely worth a punt.
