Player News - West Bromwich Albion

Date: Team: Pos:

Swansea City are in the market for a winger this summer and, with the announcement that he is not a part of Mauricio Pochettino's plans, Alex Pritchard has emerged on their radar.

Championship clubs Leeds, Newcastle United and Norwich City are also interested in Pritchard, who never had an opportunity to impress under Pochettino in 2015/2016, having been injured for much of the first half of the season and then went on loan to West Brom in January, making only three appearances as a substitute in his time there. He did enjoy a promising loan spell at Brentford the previous season and the 23-year-old attacking player is currently valued at £8m.

Salomon Rondon and Callum McManaman scored the goals as West Brom beat out Vitesse Arnham 2-1 in pre-season action on Thursday.

The Baggies lined up substantially the same as they did for much of last season with Ben Foster, four center backs (Dawson, McAuley, Evans, Olsson) and a couple of holding players (Fletcher and Yacob) backing a sparse attacking group. James Morrison is back from a protracted hamstring injury and 17-year-old Jonathan Leko got a start as did newcomer Matt Phillips. Rondon and substitute McManaman scored the goals and it was enough for a pre-season win. Saido Berahino was on as a substitute in the 48th minute but doesn't seem long for the West Brom squad.

"Sky Sports" report that Stoke City has submitted a £20 million bid for West Bromwich Albion forward Saido Berahino.

The 22-year-old recently rejected a new contract offer from West Brom in favor of leaving the club with only one year left on his current deal. Meanwhile, Watford looks to have dropped out of the race to sign Berahino with manager Walter Mazzarri content with the current squad at Vicarage Road. But the Potters have officially made the first move with Crystal Palace also reportedly weighing up a bid. Berahino has played in both of the club's preseason friendlies this summer, scoring two goals against Kidderminster over the weekend.

West Bromwich Albion officially announced that goalkeeper Boaz Myhill has signed a new one-year contract extension.

The veteran goalkeeper previously had a contract through the end of the upcoming season, but the Baggies have added another year to his contract. The 33-year-old has made 78 appearances in all competitions in his six seasons at the club and made 23 Premier League starts as he filled in for the injured Ben Foster at the beginning of the season. Said manager Tony Pulis: "We're delighted Boaz has agreed a contract extension and we've secured his services for an additional year. Boaz is a great professional and he provides good competition for Ben."

Reports around the country claim West Brom is going all out to improve its attacking line this summer with news concerning Saido Berahino and Diafra Sakho.

Amid rumors of a £16 million move to Stoke City this summer, West Brom have offered Berahino a new four-year contract despite a frosty relationship with manager Tony Pulis that resulted in multiple benchings and a spot in the coach's dog house. And due to the down year, Berahino looks to have lost out on a proposed move to Tottenham that nearly went through in the winter. Meanwhile, the Baggies are said to be planning a £15 million for West Ham striker Diafra Sakho, who submitted an official transfer request this week.

West Brom have announced the signing of midfielder Matt Phillips from Queens Park Rangers.

For the third consecutive transfer window, West Brom were linked with Phillips. They finally got their man. Able to play in a central attacking role or on either wing, Phillips fits a lot of potential needs for the Baggies. With Stephane Sessegnon gone and Saido Berahino soon to follow there should be plenty of attacking minutes to be filled so Phillips is a good bet to get a lot of minutes now that he's arrived at the Hawthorns. He could be an interesting pick in the late rounds of fantasy drafts - he probably slots in as a fifth starting midfielder/first reserve midfielder role on your fantasy roster.

Anders Lindegaard and West Brom have parted company after the Baggies and the former Manchester United goalkeeper agreed to terminated his contract.

Lindegaard arrived at the Hawthorns as an emergency back-up last season when Ben Foster was injured and Boaz Myhill the only senior team goalkeeper. He didn't play much as Myhill kept the nets warm for Foster. Lindegaard's prospects got even less attractive once Foster returned in the second half of the season. The move to cancel his contract makes sense for both sides as Lindegaard surely will be interested in going somewhere where he will at least be the first in line to deputize for the starter.

West Bromwich Albion confirmed midfielder James Morrison has signed a new contract to remain at the club this summer.

Reports claimed Sunderland and Middlesbrough, Morrison's former club before arriving at West Brom in 2007, were chasing the 30-year-old, whose contract was set to expire in a few days. But the Baggies secured Morrison for two more years through the summer of 2019 with a club option for a third year. Last season, Morrison made 18 Premier League appearances, recording three goals and three assists, before suffering a knee injury that kept him out for the final three months of the season.

Southampton are set to join the race for Saido Berahino after selling Sadio Mane to Liverpool.

Berahino is reportedly on the market and Stoke City have been discussed as the top destination for the 22-year-old English player. Southampton will now join the sweepstakes and try to pry the youngster away. He would be a great addition to already signed Nathan Redmond and could play alongside Graziano Pelle.

West Bromwich Albion has secured one of its rising stars in Jonathan Leko to a new three-year contract through summer of 2019.

The 17-year-old became the first player born in 1999 to make his debut in the English top flight last year after starting against West Ham toward the end of the past season at 16 years old. Leko had previously made his first-team debut in the League Cup in September, but impressed with his pace and poise on the wing in a couple of starts at the end of the year. The winger was named as the 2015/16 Young Player of the Year at West Brom. Meanwhile, 18-year-old midfielder Sam Field is also in line for a contract extension this summer.

It appears as though Stoke City will emerge as the victor in the Premier League race to sign Saido Berahino this summer.

Reports across England claim West Bromwich Albion has accepted a £16 million bid for the 22-year-old as the Potters will offer a long-term contract and a wage package worth £70,000-a-week. The Baggies originally shot down Stoke City's offer of £15 million earlier this week in the hopes of getting more in return for Berahino. But after failing to land a better deal, they came back to the bargaining table. Berahino scored only four Premier League goals last season after 14 the season prior, drawing £20 million-plus bids from Spurs and Newcastle.

Gareth Bale served in a great cross that force a bad touch from Gareth McAuley and ended up as the only goal of the match.

It wasn't a great match as far as entertainment value. Northern Ireland were intent on making it a grind of a match with few chances in either direction. It nearly worked but Gareth Bale produced a moment of magic that would have been guided home by Hal Robson-Kanu had McAuley not intervened unsuccessfully first. Wales are now on to the quarterfinals of Euro 2016

Northern Ireland scored an historic victory over Ukraine on the power of a 49th minute header from Gareth McAuley followed up by a stoppage time goal from Niall McGinn.

It was a first-ever win in European Championship competition for Northern Ireland who are, at least briefly, even with Poland and Germany on three points at the top of Group C. The Northern Irish were stout in defense and managed to silence Ukraine's big name attackers Konoplyanka and Yarmolenko. They went ahead on McAuley's goal and were defending for much of the match until McGinn spurned an opportunity to waste time in the corner and cut it back to the middle for an insurance goal.

A Saido Berahino move seems like it may finally happen after Stoke City and West Ham have been heavily linked this summer.

It didn't go particularly well for the player or his club last summer with Berahino and West Brom having a falling out over his desire to move to White Hart Lane. A season playing only sporadically seems to have diminished his value and his likely list of suitors. With no mention of Spurs, the Potters and Hammers seem set to battle it out for Berahino's signature. Watford is also mentioned as a possible destination. West Brom look like they'll also pay a price for last summer's drama as Berahino has only a year left on his deal and the price looks to be lower than it would have been if he'd moved to the Lane last summer.

West Brom will reportedly come back around with another bid for Queens Park Rangers winger Matt Phillips this summer.

The Baggies came close to signing the winger last summer as well as in the winter transfer window, but Queens Park Rangers was reportedly looking for a fee in the £10 million range. Phillips put together a fine second half in 2015 when the Hoops were relegated, with three goals and eight assists in 20 starting appearances. But with only a year left on his contract, Tony Pulis is keen to make a return bid for a lower fee. Meanwhile, West Brom will let midfielder Sandro return to QPR following his loan with the Brazilian linked with a free transfer to Portugal.
