“Former Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle striker Leon Best is training with West Bromwich Albion,” states the report in The Daily Mail.

“However, the 29-year-old is unlikely to get a deal under Tony Pulis. The Albion manager is happy to let Best train with his squad as he looks to find a new club.”

Best is a free agent at the moment, having left Rotherham United at the end of last season.

The 29-year-old striker scored four goals and created 12 chances in 16 Championship appearances for Rotherham during the 2015-16 campaign.

The former Newcastle United and Blackburn Rovers man had a pass accuracy of 57% and a shot accuracy of 57%, and won 57 headers, seven dribbles and seven tackles.

Best is a decent striker, and he should able to find a club either in the Championship or in the Premier League before the start of the 2016-17 campaign.

Training with West Brom in pre-season is going to be beneficial to him in maintaining his fitness.

The Baggies will kick off their 2016-17 Premier League campaign with an away game against Crystal Palace.
