West Brom eye a triple transfer swoop as Liverpool and Leeds United battle for defender – Championship rumours
West Bromwich Albion have been in contact with Everton to discuss the possibility of Mason Holgate returning to the club on loan.
The former Barnsley starlet spent the second half of the season last year on loan at The Hawthorns, making the right-back spot his own under Darren Moore and then Jimmy Shan.
Now the club are looking into a deal to bring him back to B71 for the forthcoming campaign.
Albion have made a move to bring Romaine Sawyers back to The Hawthorns from Brentford, and are expected to complete a deal for QPR right-back Darnell Furlong.
Midfielder Sawyers joined the Bees in 2016 from former club Walsall – having joined Dean Smith at Griffin Park from the Bescot – and he has been a regular at the club since.
The St Kitts and Nevis international was released by the Baggies back in 2013, without making a first team appearance.
Furlong, meanwhile, is likely to cost Albion around £1.5m and is expected to undergo a medical.
Leeds keen on defender
Leeds United are making a move for Reims II defender Enzo Valentim, according to reports.
The 18-year-old has impressed the Whites’ scouting department, reports Football Insider, but they face competition from fellow Championship side Stoke City and European champions Liverpool.
Valentim has already been called up to represent France U19s and is considered a huge prospect, hence the extensive interest from England.
Derby County are lining up a move for PSV midfielder Bart Ramselaar.
The 23-year-old is believed to have been told he can leave the Dutch club this summer and the opportunity to reunite with former PSV boss Phillip Cocu is on the cards.
Ramselaar has been told he isn’t needed by PSV this coming season and a new challenge at Pride Park appears plausible.
The East Midlands club are rebuilding after suffering the disappointment of the play-off final defeat in May and the loss of Frank Lampard to Chelsea.
Derby have already added Graeme Shinnie of Aberdeen and Kieran Dowell of Everton.
