Olofinjana and Balde linked with Baggies

Olofinjana  and Balde linked with Baggies

Wolves giant midfielder Seyi Olofinjana is reportedly keen on joining the Baggies.
The player has a £3m buy-out clause in his contract but it is extremely unlikely that West Brom Chairman would want to pay that much for a Championship player with no Premiership experience.

The Nigerian international is 6'4' tall and has undoubted ability on the ball. He would appear to be just the sort of player that would add steel to the Baggies midfield and his height would be invaluable at set pieces, a major problem for the team last season.

In another regurgitated rumour Guinea international central defender Bobo Balde has been linked with a move to the Baggies. At 33 years of age Balde is seeking more first team football having only appeared 4 times for the Bhoys last season.

Central defence is certainly an area where Tony Mowbray needs to strengthen but would he see Balde as improving that area?
