According to a report from The Sun on Sunday (print edition; 21st January 2018; page 64), West Brom are plotting a potential move for Tamas Kadar - six years after Alan Pardew released him when he was in charge of the Baggies' Premier League rivals.

It is going to be a crucial end to the January transfer window for West Brom. They remain in the relegation zone in the Premier League and are yet to make any signings, so Pardew will be hoping to change that in the final 10 days of the window.

One player who is apparently on his radar is Kadar, who currently plays for Dynamo Kiev. The Sun on Sunday (print edition; 21st January 2018; page 64) reports that the Baggies are considering making a £3 million bid for the centre-back.

The Sun on Sunday adds that Kadar is interested in making a move back to England having spent four years on Newcastle's books before his release in 2012, when current West Brom boss Pardew was in charge at St James' Park.

While Kadar's spell with the Magpies did not capture the imagination - he left Newcastle having made just 18 appearances in all competitions across the four years - he is now an experienced Hungary international, and has lined up alongside Baggies cult-hero Zoltan Gera on a number of occasions.

But if West Brom do make a move and manage to bring Kadar in, he will certainly need to hit the ground running as the Baggies look set to be right in the mix to try and beat the drop this season.
