Robert Snodgrass of West Ham is close to making a free move to West Brom. According to the PA news agency, the winger is set to remain for 18 months at The Hawthorns.
In spite of Albion fighting relegation with only one win this season, Snodgrass is heading with the promise of playing more first-team soccer. This season, the Scotland international has made six appearances for the Hammers, scoring two goals but featuring in the Premier League for just four minutes. His London Stadium deal expires in the summer and the 33-year-old is not part of the long-term ambitions of David Moyes. Albion have a loan player at their hands by locking down the deal as Allardyce deals in a tight budget. He has spoken freely about his quest for replacements and said that his new squad needs to add consistency. As they strive to escape relegation, the Baggies have also been linked with Bournemouth striker Josh King. After spending the 2017-18 season on loan at Aston Villa, Snodgrass will end his four-year stay at the Hammers, where he made 86 appearances and scored 11 goals. For Filip Krovinovic, who struggled for game time during his second loan spell with the Baggies, PAOK, meanwhile, are struggling to find an agreement with Benfica. The Greek side is keen to take the midfielder on loan and if a deal is agreed, Albion will possibly allow him to leave.
