Update of transfer window emerges as attacker pleads to West Brom



West Brom received another clear signal in the last round of championship testing for coronavirus before he returned.

Albion club players and staff have been tested over the past three days, along with their counterparts from each of the other 23 clubs in the Championship, and a total of six cases have been discovered from 1192 tests performed.

These six positive cases span four different clubs at the second level, and all of these individuals are now self-isolating at home for at least the next seven days.

BirminghamLive however, it was said that the Baggies had once again received a green light.

Update of the transfer window

Discussions are underway at the Football Association over proposals to open the summer transfer window in August and leave it open until October.

As it stands, the transfer window to England is expected to open on June 18 – but that doesn’t seem likely; the Premier League and Championship are expected to resume that week and run until late July or early August.

West Brom kicks off again with Birmingham City’s visit to the Hawthorns on Saturday June 20 for a West Midlands television derby; their last game is scheduled to be against QPR on July 22.

Of course, the results of their running in depend a lot on whether, depending on whether the promotion is carried out or not, the shopping lists that the club hierarchy and Slaven Bilic will examine will be markedly different.

Pick me up

Saido Berahino has spoken very publicly about his interest in returning to West Bromwich Albion.

The former Baggies striker is currently returning to the UK after the premature end of Zulte Waregem’s campaign in the Belgian elite.

He did well at Essevee and his career again seems on an upward trajectory.

The former Albion intern recently declared his affection for the Baggies and how he would like to return to the club: “I loved my stay at West Brom. Even if West Brom came back for me, I would bounce back as soon as possible. “

Hit to opponents

Leeds United suffered a setback as their championship race with West Bromwich Albion neared recovery.

The Mirror, via The Athletic, reports that forward Jean-Kevin Augustin has suffered a recurrence of his hamstring tension and may miss the opening games.

That could prevent him from traveling to Cardiff on June 21, 24 hours after the Baggies restarted against Birmingham City at The Hawthorns.

Augustin joined RB Leipzig on loan in January but has yet to start a match or score for Marcelo Bielsa’s team.

Key call waits

One of the things to do on Luke Dowling’s list once normalcy returns to West Bromwich Albion will be to find a permanent successor to Michael Appleton who will lead the club’s U23 next season.

Albion has performed well in Premier League 2 this season, despite the uncertainty caused by Appleton’s understandable desire to join League One Lincoln earlier in the campaign.

The cancellation of the PL2 season therefore came at a frustrating time; under Deon Burton, the young Baggies have accumulated five consecutive league victories and, with games in progress over Manchester United and West Ham (the pair on the run), they were well placed for the break-in.

Albion had appreciated Chris Willock’s abilities in the first half of the campaign, but even after he left, they continued to produce results; Ray Tulloch scored goals, and there were impressive performances from regulars Finn Azaz, George Harmon, Saul Shotton and Jack Fitzwater, among others.
