According to a report in the Express and Star, West Bromwich Albion's head of recruitment, Nick Hammond, was in attendance at Charlton Athletic’s pre-season friendly against Welling to keep tabs on midfielder Jordan Cousins.

West Brom have made Cousins a transfer target this summer, as Tony Pulis looks to bolster his squad.

The Baggies have turned their attention to bringing in players from the Football League - with Cousins one of a number of targets they have identified.

Albion could be ready to step up their interest in Cousins, with Hammond now keeping a close eye on his performances.

Cousins played for 45 minutes against Welling, and he helped the Addicks pick up a 4-1 victory against the non league outfit.
