Report: West Brom target Waasland-Beveren left-back David Addy ahead of summer transfer

West Brom

West Brom are reportedly interested in signing David Addy.

Having seen key transfer target Neil Taylor agree a new contract with Swansea City, the Tamworth Herald are claiming that the Baggies are now interested in signing Ghanaian international full-back David Addy this summer.

The 25-year-old currently plays for Waasland-Beveren in Belgium, who he joined last summer from Guimaraes of Portugal.

He has made 28 appearances this season across all competitions, and his impressive performances have seen interest from West Brom, as manager Tony Pulis looks to revamp his defensive unit.

There is no left-back in the squad who is favoured by Pulis, leaving him to utilise both Chris Brunt and Joleon Lescott out-of-position as defenders. Signing a natural full-back in the summer looks to be of vital importance, and Addy can fulfil that role.

Previously in his career, the 25-year-old has played for Porto, Academica and Panetolikos, totalling over 100 professional appearances. It is during his current spell that he has put in his most impressive performances, and it is no surprise that there is now Premier League interest in him.

Also a full Ghanaian international, Addy has been capped 17 times by his nation, making his debut in 2008.

There are no references to a fee needed to sign the full-back, but Waasland can hold West Brom to ransom as he only signed for the club last season. However, the Baggies need to sign a left-back, and Addy looks a great option, so the club should be willing to go all out to capture the services of the talented defender.
