Report: West Brom take Ricardo Vaz Te on trial, permanent deal possible

Ricardo Vaz Te

West Brom have reportedly offered former West Ham forward Ricardo Vaz Te a trial period at The Hawthorns.

According to the Birmingham Mail, West Bromwich Albion have offered to take former West Ham forward Ricardo Vaz Te on trial.

The Baggies added a host of new faces over the summer, bringing in the likes of Anders Lindegaard, James Chester, Jonny Evans, James McClean, Serge Gnabry, Rickie Lambert and Salomon Rondon in a busy few months for manager Tony Pulis.

However, it now seems that Pulis isn't quite done with new signings just yet, with the Birmingham Mail reporting that Ricardo Vaz Te has been offered a trial with the club.

Vaz Te, 28, left West Ham in January in order to sign for Turkish side Akhisar Belediyespor, but is looking to come back to English football after his six-month contract expired this summer.

The Portuguese winger hit 19 goals in 61 games for West Ham, and became something of a cult hero at Upton Park after his winning goal in the 2012 Championship Play-off Final against Blackpool, sending the Hammers back to the Premier League.

With pace and an eye for goal, Vaz Te could be a shrewd signing for Pulis on a free transfer, and the Birmingham Mail suggest that the forward will begin training with West Brom this week ahead of a possible short-term contract.
