The transfer window is officially open for business, and whilst it means that clubs can start signing players for now, teams can also begin searching for names that could join for free in the summer if their contracts are running up.
West Brom have eight players whose contracts are set to expire this summer:

And for West Brom fans, this could become a problem as WBA Report revealed that the Baggies have a number of first-team players whose deals with the club are expected to end in the summer, potentially making the likes of Kyle Edwards, Jonothan Bond and Nathan Ferguson free targets for other teams.
Do West Brom have the best squad in the Championship?
With the Albion having a number of talented players free to leave the club in the summer, West Brom supporters on social media gave their suggestions as to who the Baggies should sign up to new deals in order to keep them with the Championship giants.
Here’s what West Brom fans had to say on Twitter as to which players the club should look to keep…
I would go with Ferguson O’Shea Edwards. If they think fitzwater can do it then get him signed but otherwise let the lad play somewhere else. Bond seems good but I don’t he will want to stay unless he has games. Maybe go for bit of experience if we go up there

Bond. Ferguson. O’Shea. Edwards. Never seen fitzwater so hard to comment. Not brunt or Barry I’m afraid much as my heart says otherwise. I think Ferguson,O’Shea and Edwards have bags of potential. Down to their attitude,decision making and a bit of luck if they really make it big

Keep bond then let all go if Nathan don’t wanna sign a contract

O’Shea Ferguson and Edwards let the rest go time to move on

If we go up, we may need a better back up keeper than Bond. Would definitely offer O’Shea a decent deal, Fitzwater a 12 month deal and Edwards maybe 2 year (though not fully convinced he is PL standard).

The Mirror reported this week that Ferguson is on the radar for both Tottenham and Crystal Palace.
