A massive twenty-one game streak with no wins had firmly placed West Bromwich Albion in the relegation zone. They had another opportunity last week when they come up against a considerably weaker opposition in the form of Exeter City and West Brom snatched it by going on to win 2-0 on the night. It did a world of good to Pardew and his men as they followed it up with another solid 2-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion.
Their first win in months means that West Bromwich Albion is still sitting in the 19th place in the league table but is just two points away from safety. They still have work to do to escape relegation but their win last week they have shown that if the players play to their potential they can seriously turn around their form; something they must do if they want to experience the riches of the Premier League next season.
With Alan Pardew in charge, West Bromwich Albion will be hoping to stay up in the Premier League after parting ways with Tony Pulis. Their performances in the 1-1 against Tottenham and Manchester City where they lost 2-3 showed that they have enough quality in the squad to cut it out in the Premier League. It seems now, in order to help Pardew have a strong second half, West Brom is ready to be in reinforcements.
Former Manchester United and current Wigan Athletic midfielder Nick Powell have been linked with a move to join the Baggies this January. The English player failed to impress at Manchester United where he made only 9 appearances in four years. He subsequently moved to Wigan in 2016 where he has impressed for the Latics.
He is now being scouted for a transfer by two Championship clubs in the form of Derby County and Aston Villa. There are also three English Premier League clubs in the chase for the player and if reports are to be believed Crystal Palace, Southampton and West Brom have already made contact with the player.
Wigan is reportedly ready to give in to any incoming party seeking Powell and have signed James Vaughan from Sunderland to replace the Englishman. Although any interested club will have to deliver a fee of £1.5 million should they wish to pry away Powell from the League One club. Given West Brom’s need to beef up their squad to deliver in the second half of the season, Powell could very well prove to be a bargain at such a low price in today’s market.
