West Bromwich Albion Transfers

The Latest West Bromwich Albion FC Transfer News

Historical Transfer News and Team Gossip has been archived below:

West Bromwich Albion manager Steve Clarke has been scouring the transfer market for new additions for his squad for some time now and the club has made enquiries for several players from all over Europe. There are also a number of names that are due to be leaving the club this summer even though Clarke is attempting to keep all his best players at the Hawthorns for the foreseeable future.

The club had their first disappointment of the summer yesterday as their deal to bring talented midfielder Tongo Doumbia in from Rennes after the player refused to agree to personal terms set out by West Brom. The Mali international has stated he has a huge desire to play in the premier league and would have loved to arrive at the Hawthorns but after extensive talks the two parties could not agree on personal terms so unfortunately for West Brom fans the player will remain with his current club next season unless the baggies come back with a more suitable offer.

Blackburn are also in talks to bring West Brom striker Simon Cox to Ewood park after the player has struggled to nail down a first team spot with the baggies ever since arriving from Swindon in 2009. The player has now fallen even further down the pecking list behind Shane Long and Peter Odemwingie and now it looks all but certain that the player will be departing the Hawthorns in the summer months.

A major coup for the manager this summer is the year long loan signing of Belgian international Yassine El Ghanassy after the talented winger made his arrival from home club Gent. Clarke has seen the player as an exciting addition to his squad and hopes that he will be able to reinforce his front line with the player who has been terrorizing Belgian defences for the past three years.

West Bromwich Albion Latest News for 2017 – 2018

  • Tue, 16 Jan 2018 18:29:00 +0000: Arsène Wenger called referee Mike Dean ‘a disgrace’ after West Brom penalty - West Bromwich Albion | The Guardian
    • Arsenal manager accused official of ‘not being honest’
    • Referee gave Albion controversial spot-kick in New Year’s Eve draw

    Arsène Wenger accused the referee Mike Dean of not being honest and branded him a “disgrace” in a heated exchange following December’s 1-1 draw at the Hawthorns.

    The Football Association has published its reasons for Wenger’s three-game touchline suspension and it shines a spotlight on the manager’s unhappiness following the New Year’s Eve clash. Wenger was furious after Dean awarded West Brom a late penalty when Calum Chambers was adjudged to have handled Kieran Gibbs’s cross late on and Jay Rodriguez dispatched the equaliser.

  • Tue, 16 Jan 2018 13:14:05 +0000: 'By changing football, he changed the country': our readers on Cyrille Regis - West Bromwich Albion | The Guardian

    Cyrille Regis was not just an international footballer. He was a special man who touched the lives of the people he met

    Football fans across the country have been united in grief by the news that Cyrille Regis has died at the age of 59 after suffering a heart attack. Regis, who won five caps for England, was perhaps best known for his “Three Degrees” days at West Brom and for winning the FA Cup with Coventry in 1987. But he was more than a player; he helped changed attitudes in the game and in the country, as our readers have been recalling.

    We published a range of pieces about Regis yesterday – an obituary, an interview from our archive, a short video featuring him in action and some memories from Richard Williams – and our readers responded in kind by contributing their own stories. Here are a few of their memories:

    Nice one Cyrille, nice one son. Nice one Cyrille, let’s have another one,” is my earliest memory of a football match. As a seven-year-old I stood at the back of a stand at the Hawthorns and heard that being roared. It has stuck in my memory forever.

    I had the good fortune to meet the great man once. I was in a Wacky Warehouse with my daughter and he was there with his granddaughter. We were the only two adults in the room and I asked him if he was Cyrille Regis. He put down his paper, smiled, said: “Yes I am.” We spent the next 90 minutes talking about the Albion and football. He gave his time without a moment’s hesitation.

    Cyrille Regis changed football for the better with a high cost to himself and he did it back in the day, when he would not have been paid silly money like they are today. By changing football, he also changed the country’s attitude. Football fans now call out racists at games – maybe not every time but most of the time – and that was all started off by Cyrille and the other black footballers of those days. It is such a shame he has died so young. JDOxford

    When I saw the photo of him on the website I cried out “oh no” so loud my colleagues thought I had received news of the passing of nearest and dearest. I’m devastated to learn of the passing of this maestro, a proper centre-forward, powerful, no-nonsense, skilled and a true star. He won far too few England caps. It is clear the Midlands is in mourning for this great man who I admired and enjoyed watching play. I am a Manchester City supporter and would have loved to watch him play for City, but he played for many other great clubs, and with such distinction.

    I am very pleased to note that City, in a very small way, perhaps paved the way for Regis and others when they played a black footballer, Stan Horne, in the 1960s. I met Stan and would have loved to have met Cyrille. The football world is a poorer place for his passing; the warmth and dignity of his widow’s words moistened my eyes almost as much as reading of his death. RIP big man. 27August66

    What an amazing footballer, what an amazing man. It is shocking to read about the vile prejudice Cyrille Regis, Laurie Cunningham, Brendon Batson and other black players had to suffer. Such racism still exists in football today but is not as widespread or easily accepted as it was in the 1970s. The skills and character of Cyrille Regis helped to make life better for black footballers in the UK. RIP Cyrille. purplesurfer

    A good enough player that Johan Cruyff quit at Ajax when they messed up getting him in as Marco van Basten’s replacement – according to Cruyff’s biography. To be rated by Cruyff and to be considered good enough to replace Van Basten says it all about his ability. The way he dealt with the crap thrown at him says it all about his character. Viking71

    A generation of Albion fans revelled in his power and poise. He was our hero, but his dignity and grace transcended football. He was a role model in so many ways. He was a quiet achiever. He lead by example on and off the pitch. He invested good deeds and actions back into our community.

    As a player he lifted Baggies’ hearts and spirits with his bravado, electric pace and monumental goals. Because he was fabulous, so were we. Magnificent times. Great memories. WestBromAlbion

    As a young trade journalist about 15 years ago I was invited to a press event at a curry restaurant in Mayfair. It was to publicise Jamaica’s first fixture in London, I think. I wouldn’t have bothered going until I saw guest of honour was none other than Cyrille Regis, who was working as an agent at the time.

    My mate Amos was a mad Coventry fan, who had grown up idolising big Cyrille; he believed he was the great lost English-centre forward, unfairly ignored in favour of lesser technically gifted players such as Mark Hateley, Gary Lineker and Kerry Dixon. Amos loved the man.

  • Mon, 15 Jan 2018 19:32:00 +0000: Cyrille Regis, former West Brom and England striker, dies aged 59 - West Bromwich Albion | The Guardian
    • Regis was a pioneer for black footballers in the late 1970s
    • The striker suffered a heart attack on Sunday night

    Football was engulfed in grief but united in its admiration for Cyrille Regis following his untimely death at the age of 59.

    The former West Brom and England striker, who endured grotesque abuse from the terraces in the 1970s and 80s, blazed a trail for black footballers in England through his spellbinding goals and iron will, which transformed attitudes on and off the field, in concert at Albion with Laurie Cunningham and Brendon Batson.

    Cyrille Regis was a true hero of football. He helped change attitudes on the terraces and in society, while often being subject to horrific racist abuse himself. #RIPCyrille @Coventry_City @WBA

    West Bromwich Albion and England footballer who blazed a trail for black players in the 1970s and 80s

    Cyrille Regis, who has died aged 59 of a suspected heart attack, was a greatly admired centre-forward with West Bromwich Albion, Coventry and England and one of the first black footballers to make a significant impact on the British game.

    Strong, quick and direct, he had an excellent touch and a very rare ability to score spectacular goals, typically picking up the ball from just inside the opposition’s half, beating a couple of players with a dynamic, powerful run, and then shooting from outside the penalty area with unerring accuracy – as epitomised by his Goal of the Season against Norwich in the FA Cup in 1982.

    10 February 1990 Former electrician Regis joined West Bromwich Albion in 1977 for £5,000 from non-League Hayes, scoring twice on his debut

    Regis, pioneering black footballer, dies aged 59

    There have been few more explosive starts to a career than the one made by Cyrille Regis. Except for that of his present striking partner at Coventry City, Steve Livingstone.

    Regis came to West Bromwich Albion in 1977 as a 19-year-old bright spark (yes, he was an electrician), signed for £5,000 from the non-League club Hayes, and was thrust into the first team due to injury. He scored twice in a League Cup tie at Rotherham.
