Report: West Brom will not make January bid for Ignacio Camacho

Malaga's Ignacio Camacho was reportedly a target for West Bromwich Albion.

According to the Express and Star, West Bromwich Albion have denied holding any interest in Malaga's Ignacio Camacho. 

The Baggies had been linked, in the same publication, with making a £14.7 million bid for the Spanish international, but apparently no offer will be submitted. 

If West Brom had been keen on Camacho, it would have been another indication of their ambition, after a fairly impressive summer transfer window.

The capture of Salomon Rondon from Zenit Saint Petersburg was an impressive piece on business from the Midlands side, and Camacho would have been a similarly high-profile addition.

Camacho has represented the likes of Atletico Madrid and Malaga over the course of his career so far, and is a very experienced performer in La Liga despite still only being 25. 

The defensive midfielder is capable in possession, and is also defensively disciplined, meaning he could have been a good fit for a well-drilled West Brom team. 

Instead, the Baggies will be looking elsewhere for new recruits in January, with Tony Pulis keen to add further quality to his squad.
