With news that West Bromwich Albion had invited former Republic of Ireland international midfielder Wes Hoolahan to our training ground for a short trial period during the September international break, initial reactions to the news from fans that I saw was largely positive, if not that excited.

West Brom To Trial International Midfielder

The 36-year-old was let go over the summer by Norwich City after having spent a decade at Carrow Road and with over 300 games to his name in club football, let alone 43 caps in international matches, he’s incredibly experienced at both top-flight and Championship levels, so many were welcome to the idea of a short-term deal until next summer as cover in midfield.

As the night went on though, and more fans heard about the speculation, excitement hit for these fans at least as they think it would be a solid move and that he should definitely become our ninth capture of the summer.

If a sensible financial deal can be made, given the reference to youngsters he could certainly help them on the training pitches as well.
