It wasn’t a fantastic transfer window for West Bromwich Albion in reality. We saw a number of arrivals as head coach Darren More stamps his mark on the squad but he didn’t get everyone he wanted and we also saw some bizarre boardroom decisions – namely the departures of Salomon Rondon on a deal I still don’t fully understand and the late deal seeing waster Nacer Chadli finally removed from our wage bill.

The player headed to French Ligue One side AS Monaco for a fee claimed to be £10million and my initial reaction was ‘goodbye’ and let’s hope he doesn’t gain a genuine injury now.

Other fans on social media weren’t quite as restrained as I was but undoubtedly not getting his release fee as I remember it being reported was a disappointment and an insult given his ‘professionalism’ during his time with us.

Now, I’m not concerned the deal went through late and we didn’t have time to source a replacement, I think we’ve already got twice the player in loanee Harvey Barnes and twice the player in Matty Phillips and twice the player in Oliver Burke.

We’ll miss Chadli like humanists will miss Donald Trump when he finally lies himself to death but you can’t help feel we were shafted on the fee.
