Ignacio Camacho playing for Spain
According to Spanish radio station Cadena COPE, West Bromwich Albion are set to activate the €18m (£15.35m) release clause in the contract of Malaga midfielder Ignacio Camacho.
The Baggies drew 0-0 with Middlesbrough at The Hawthorns in a drab affair, with fans desperately hoping to see manager Tony Pulis bring in some new faces ahead of Wednesday's transfer deadline.

A number of positions need strengthening, with Pulis so far only able to bring in left back Brendan Galloway on loan from Everton and winger Matt Phillips from QPR – and a deal for a Spanish midfielder may not be too far away.
Spanish radio station Cadena COPE report that West Brom are set to pay €18m (£15.35m) for Malaga midfielder Ignacio Camacho, which will activate his release clause and give him a clear path to joining the club.
West Brom manager Tony Pulis
Camacho, 26, started his career with Real Zaragoza and Atletico Madrid, but after just 34 first-team appearances for Atleti, he moved on to Malaga in 2011, and has been a star ever since.
With more than 150 appearances for Malaga, Camacho has been a key player in the heart of the Andalusian side's midfield, whilst he has even earned a cap for Spain during his time at La Rosaleda.

A strong midfielder with a great range of passing, Camacho can even fill in at centre back if needed, and he would represent a major investment for West Brom and manager Pulis.
The report claims that a deal should be struck in the coming hours, with Camacho now presented with the chance to sign for West Brom – and Pulis will be hoping to get a positive response from the midfielder in the coming days as he looks to boost his squad.
