Burnley were linked with the West Bromwich Albion man, but surely there is no need now after signing someone else.

West Bromwich Albion need all the attacking help that they can get this season.

The Baggies have fashioned just 19 goalscoring chances all season long, and have only scored four goals in the eight Premier League matches that Alan Pardew has taken charge of so far.

James McClean has been linked with a move away from West Brom, but is Pardew set to keep the Republic of Ireland winger?

According to The Daily Mail, Burnley were interested in signing the 28-year-old, who has scored one of the four goals that Albion have netted under Pardew.

But the Clarets have wrapped up a deal to sign Georges-Kevin N'Koudou from Tottenham Hotspur and it seems unlikely that Sean Dyche will be ringing the West Brom boss now.

With Nacer Chadli still injured, the emphasis for The Hawthorns side must be on keeping their wide players this month, and the good news is that McClean looks unlikely to be leaving.

Of course, other sides - such as Celtic perhaps - could register an interest in the Northern Irish attacker, but Burnley were the big danger, given that they're massively over-achieving this season, and Albion shouldn't be hugely concerned about anyone else in England.
