West Bromwich Albion had a fairly good season in the last term, finishing in the 10th position in the Premier League table and will look for a better outcome this season. They played some eye-catching football in the last term and ensured that the team made good progress throughout the season.
The Baggies excelled in all departments, especially the defence, making sure that the opposition strikers could not get past them and score easily.
The man in charge at the Hawthorns, Tony Pulis, has been eyeing some new options to be brought into the team for the new season to eradicate the unexpected loopholes and make their lineup even more solid in the backline. One player who has been on the radar of the wily manager of West Brom is the right back Joel Ward, who is currently playing for the Premier League outfit Crystal Palace.
The 27-year-old player is an integral part of the Eagles lineup and has been playing for them since 2012. He has made 186 appearances so far for the Premier League side and played a very important role in the last term to take his team out of the relegation zone and ensure that they stay back in the top tier for this season as well.
The English international has attracted the attention of a number of clubs in the Premier League as well as Championship with his sincere playing style that has helped his side avert dangers in the last term. The Eagles are well aware of the fact and are trying their level best to make their right back stay with them in the new season as well. However, it seems that the player is all set to join the Baggies in the summer transfer window and adorn their side for the new season in the right back position.
Reportedly, the player has rejected a new deal with that will tie him down at the Selhurst Park for the next four years. This has irked the speculation even more that the Englishman is on his way to join another club in the Premier League, preferably the Baggies, to continue his career in the top flight.
Tony Pulis is well aware of the strength and weaknesses of the player, as he was the one to select him in the first team during his regime at Crystal Palace and is looking forward to the reunion in the new season.
