Report: West Brom end interest in Crystal Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey due to asking price

West Brom

West Brom are no longer looking to sign the Crystal Palace man.

The Baggies were linked with making a move for Hennessey earlier this summer, but a report in the Mirror claims that they have ended their interest in the Crystal Palace man due to disagreements over a fee.

The Welsh stopper had been Tony Pulis’ number one target this summer, and with Alex McCarthy’s arrival at Selhurst Park, it was expected Palace would allow Hennessey to leave for a cheap fee.

However, issues have arisen between the two clubs, as Palace are playing hardball over a fee, causing the Baggies to look elsewhere for goalkeeping reinforcements.

A report in the Birmingham Mail has linked the Midlands club with David Marshall of Cardiff City, and although the £3.5 million asking price is high, it appears as if Pulis is more willing to pay that amount than splash the cash on Hennessey.

The report does state that Hennessey could remain a target if Palace willingly lower their asking price, but, as of now, West Brom are attempting to close a deal for Marshall instead.
