According to the Mirror, West Bromwich Albion are eyeing up a move for Bristol City’s Aden Flint.
The report claims the Baggies have sent scouts to watch the 6ft 7inch centre-back in action and are now considering a £2 million move when the transfer window opens this summer.
Flint, 26, has been a key figure for the Robbins over the years and helped the club win League One and subsequently earn promotion to the Championship last season.
The step up to Championship level has been difficult for a number of players at Ashton Gate, yet the coveted defender has been a shining light for the club having featured 34 times in the league.
West Brom boss Tony Pulis isn’t renowned for making deals in January, and instead the former Stoke City manager opts to scout his targets intensely ahead of a potential summer move.
The Baggies are currently sitting on 35 points in the Premier League and look safe for another season, though the same can’t be said of the Black Cats who are deep in the relegation mix.
