A number of West Brom fans have taken to Twitter to comment on the reports emerging from the Express and Star earlier this week which suggested that the Baggies have their eye on a potential loan deal for Crystal Palace's Joel Ward.
Darren Moore's men have made a mixed start to the new Championship season, with four points coming from their opening three games in the second tier.
A surprise defeat to Bolton was followed by a draw at Nottingham Forest. They notched up their first win of the campaign in a seven-goal thriller against Norwich City. They may be up and running, but six goals conceded in three games suggests that there is plenty of work to do before the loan window closes later this month.
The news appears to have gone down extremely positively amongst the West Brom fans on social media. Allan Nyom has struggled this term and endured an extremely difficult afternoon at Carrow Road at the weekend as Norwich put three past Sam Johnstone.
Ward would arrive at The Hawthorns with bags of Premier League experience under his belt, and at 28, he is hardly the kind of player that is looking to gradually wind down. And following Nyom's display at the weekend, it appears that he would be an extremely popular addition to the squad if the Baggies could get something done.
Here is the best of the reaction to the reports...
What we need from this loan window:— Ben Roberts (@BRoberts_WBA) August 13, 2018
✅ Joel Ward
✅ Extra striker to be third option behind Gayle and Rodriguez (HRK is useless)
✅ Creative midfielder
Get it done!— Ryan Barron (@RJBarron1988) August 13, 2018
Would be very happy with Joel Ward, always thought he was a decent right back when he was at Pompey #wba— Samuel (@Samuel_WBA) August 13, 2018
If we sign Joel ward and Connor wickham on loan I’d be really happy with that. Ward is a solid full back and wickham would give us a physical presence our current strikers don’t have at the moment #wba— Cal_6 (@CallumNicholls) August 13, 2018
Roy is sorting us out with Joel Ward he still loves the Albion #wba— Jake (@XMyTwitt3r) August 12, 2018
I’d take Joel Ward from Palace. Would be a solid right back for the championship and a big improvement on Nyom. #wba— Andy Leeman (@AndyLeeman91) August 12, 2018
Joel Ward would be an amazing addition if we can get him #wba— Jordan (@JordanHarris97) August 12, 2018
Joel ward is 100x better than Allan Nyom! Get it done Albion #WBA— Ben Hadlington (@BenHadlington) August 12, 2018
