Republic of Ireland international Best is a free agent after seeing out his contract at Rotherham United earlir this summer.

West Brom have invited the powerful forward to train with them during pre-season so that Baggies boss Tony Pulis can have a look at him at close quarters.

West Brom are in the market for striking reinforcements after releasing Victor Anichebe and Stephane Sessegnon earlier this summer, while doubts continue to surround the future of Saido Berahino with Stoke and Crystal Palace battling it out for his services.
