West Brom cancel PSV friendly after being warned of violent threat

West Brom have two more friendlies before beginning their Premier League campaign. West Brom has cancelled their friendly against PSV Eindhoven after being warned by Dutch police of a threat of violence in Arnhem on Friday. Local authorities cautioned the Premier League side that a number of possibly ill-intentioned PSV supporters were set to travel to the Fox Sports Cup match, which resulted in the abandonment of the fixture and the Baggies' immediate return to England.  "We naturally share the disappointment of our supporters who have travelled to Arnhem that the game has...

Crystal Palace make 20m bid for Saido Berahino of West Brom - report

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop believes its time for West Brom to cut ties with Saido Berahino. Sources say Saido Berahino is the subject of a big-money offer from Crystal Palace. Crystal Palace have made an offer of £20 million plus add-ons for West Brom striker Saido Berahino, sources have told Press Association Sport. The offer remains on the table and has not been accepted or rejected by the Baggies. It tops Stoke's offer of £17m plus £3m in add-ons from earlier in the week -- which is also yet to get an official answer -- but West Brom have always wanted to find a suitable replacement before allowing Berahino to complete a move. Sources say the 22-year-old...

Big Sam uncertainty could see Sunderland miss out on Moukandjo

Sunderland’s managerial uncertainty could see them miss out on Lorient striker Benjamin Moukandjo, with West Brom also interested.

The Wearsiders are in the hunt for new striking options and have been linked with the 27-year-old Cameroon striker.

Moukandjo notched 13 goals in Ligue 1 last season, form which has also alerted Tony Pulis.

According to The Chronicle, Sunderland’s pursuit is complicated by impending exit of Sam Allardyce and the uncertainty over who will lead the Black Cats into the Premier League season.

Allardyce is set to be confirmed as the new England boss in the coming days, with only the amount of compensation Sunderland are due yet to be agreed.

Reports have suggested that David Moyes has been approached by Sunderland to take over but the club cannot afford to waste any tim eas they look to build a squad strong enough to avoid a repeat of last season’s relegation battle.

West Brom plan new bid for Leicester's Jeffrey Schlupp - sources

West Brom are not giving up on their pursuit of Jeffrey Schlupp. West Brom are planning a new bid for Leicester winger Jeffrey Schlupp after seeing their initial offer turned down, sources have confirmed to ESPN FC. Last week, the Baggies had made a £9 million bid for Schlupp as Tony Pulis looks to bolster his squad. Pulis has identified Schlupp as a top target as the versatile 23-year-old can play at left-back and on the left wing, making him a valuable addition to the squad. However, Leicester rejected West Brom's opening offer as they do not want to lose...

Stoke offer West Brom £20m for Berahino

Stoke make an offer worth £20m to Premier League rivals West Brom for striker Saido Berahino.

West Brom consider increased £10m bid for Leicester?s Schlupp

West Brom are considering making a second bid for Leicester defender Jeff Schlupp.

The Baggies have not given up hope of signing the Ghana international despite having a £9million bid rejected by the Foxes, it is understood.

Boss Tony Pulis wants to strengthen his options in wide areas at The Hawthorns and is searching for a recognised left-back. Jonny Evans finished the season in that position after Chris Brunt suffered a serious knee injury.

Leicester head into their first ever Champions League campaign with boss Claudio Ranieri reluctant to see his title-winning squad fall apart having already lost midfielder N’Golo Kante to Chelsea.

Finances are not a problem for the Baggies and a move would depend heavily on whether 23-year-old Schlupp, who can also play in midfield, would be happier as a squad player with the champions or playing regular football at The Hawthorns.

Schlupp, who scored in Leicester’s 2-1 pre-season win at Oxford on Tuesday, made 26 appearances for the Foxes last season but made just two starts after he suffered a hamstring injury in December, having lost his spot to Christian Fuchs.


Berahino approach from Stoke

Saido Berahino: Missed twice from the spot against Watford

Meanwhile, a bid of £20million from Stoke – £17million up front with £3million in add-ons – remains on the table for striker Saido Berahino.

The Baggies will not let Berahino leave until a replacement is found with West Ham’s Diafra Sakho a target and the Hammers, like Albion, want reinforcements before sanctioning any move.

Manchester United striker James Wilson remains a possibility but any move would likely come towards the end of the window, should he still be available.

Sakho price rises as ?Palace join Sunderland & West Brom in race?

Crystal Palace are reportedly ready to rival West Brom and Sunderland in the race for Diafra Sakho – with the multiple interest in the West Ham striker set to send his price tag soaring.

The 26-year-old Senegal star has asked to leave the Hammers this summer after falling out with Slaven Bilic and with the club keen to bring in a marquee striker signing to mark their move to the Olympic Stadium.

The Hammers were initially thought to be seeking around £9million for the striker, but interest in the player from the Eagles is likely to send the price soaring to around the £14million mark, with Palace joining Sunderland, West Brom and Swansea in the race to sign him.

Palace are reportedly set to turn to Sakho after seeing their £25million bid for Christian Benteke rejected by Liverpool, while efforts to sign Saido Berahino from West Brom also look destined for failure amid reports Stoke are his most likely destination.

West Ham, however, are adamant they will not allow Sakho, who has scored 15 goals in 43 appearances, to depart until they have brought in his replacement.

The Hammers are trying to sign AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca.

They are waiting for a response from the 29-year-old Colombian after making him a contract offer last week, though indications are that he will reject the move on the grounds that he wants to play for a team in the Champions League.

Sakho, on £30,000-a-week, has reportedly refused to travel with West Ham ’s squad for their pre-season training camp in Austria in a bid to speed up his departure.

Myhill agrees one-year extension at West Brom

West Brom goalkeeper Boaz Myhill has extended his stay at The Hawthorns after the Baggies confirmed that he has signed a one-year extension.

The 33-year-old’s new deal runs until the summer of 2018 and he will hope to make a century of appearances for the Baggies in that time having played in 78 games for them to date.

Myhill, who has been with West Brom for the past six years having joined from Hull, enjoyed an extended run in the team last term due to a knee injury suffered by first-choice keeper Ben Foster.

He made 23 Premier League starts for Tony Pulis’ men as they finished 14th in the final standings.

“We’re delighted Boaz has agreed a contract extension and we’ve secured his services for an additional year,” Pulis said on West Brom’s official website.

“Boaz is a great professional and he provides good competition for Ben.”
