Report: West Bromwich Albion agree terms to sign Birmingham city key star

West Bromwich Albion join the transfer race for a Birmingham City player.

West Bromwich Albion are the latest team to throw their head in the ring in order to recruit Birmingham City’s Jordan James this month.

West Bromwich Albion has expressed interest in Jordan James, joining the list of clubs interested in the Birmingham City star.
Atalanta has been extensively connected with James, but transfer talks between the two teams have stopped.
Letting James go may free up finances for Birmingham to invest in other parts of the team.
Birmingham City star Jordan James has earned a lot of interest this month, with West Bromwich Albion the latest club apparently interested in the teenager, following some good performances in a less-than-spectacular Blues team.

The Wales international broke into the scene this season in Birmingham’s midfield, becoming an important member of a team that had to deal with three changing managers before Christmas.


Former manager John Eustace was fired in October to make way for former England player Wayne Rooney, whose poor performances saw the club drop out of the top six and face relegation.
In December, he was replaced by former Sunderland manager Tony Mowbray, perhaps putting an end to the Blues’ managerial saga for the rest of the season.

Mowbray has managed to calm the ship somewhat, and a recent win over Stoke City puts the club 20th in the Championship, eight points clear of the drop zone.

Despite the turbulence behind the scenes, James has been a steady midfield performer this season, earning accolades from clubs both domestic and international.

West Brom are the latest team associated with Jordan James.

While the Premier League and Serie A appeared to be the most appealing options for James, the Welshman has also been linked with Championship club West Brom, according to recent sources.

Corriere Della Sera claimed (via SportWitness) that West Brom are the latest team to show interest in the young Welshman, who has been compared to current Atalanta star Martin De Roon, as a move away from St Andrews becomes increasingly possible.

The Baggies are looking for a new midfielder, with Newcastle United’s Isaac.


With the recent news that midfielder Jayson Molumby will miss the next three months of the season due to injury, it appears that West Brom must sign another midfielder if they are to maintain their push for promotion this season.


James would most likely only leave Birmingham on a transfer, and given the current asking costs for his talents, the Baggies may be priced out of the market by teams from the English and Italian top flights.
