It is news that has been coming for some time, but now it seems all but confirmed that Nathan Ferguson will be departing West Brom this year.
Nathan Ferguson is expected to let his contract, which expires in the summer, run down in an effort to attract interest from foreign clubs.
His agent has reportedly been in contact with “very big clubs” abroad who are all keen.

Journalist Alax Nixon confirmed on Twitter that the 19-year-old defender is likely to wait until the end of the season to move from the Hawthorns to favour a move abroad, with Ferguson’s contract with West Brom expiring next summer after failing to put pen-to-paper on a new deal with the Baggies.
Do West Brom need to spend in January?
Yes, the squad needs that extra something
No, we're sorted for now
It was always expected that Ferguson will leave the club either in this window or in the summer, but this news has struck a nerve amongst plenty of West Brom fans on social media, with many supporters disgusted by the defender’s behaviour in sorting out a new deal.
Here’s what West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about Ferguson leaving the club on Twitter…
Disgusting from all involved

The Atheltic reported last year that Ferguson had a lucrative contract offer on the table at West Brom, though it seems the youngster is keen on taking his talents abroad.
