West Brom fans are going through something of a crisis at the moment on the pitch. The Baggies have gone winless in seven games in the Championship, and now they face a real problem as Nathan Ferguson is set to sign for Crystal Palace in the final days of the January transfer window.
Looking highly likely Nathan Ferguson is about to leave Albion for Palace. Personally think he should stick with the Baggies and Bilic. But he's a lovely lad, be very interesting to see how he gets on #wba https://t.co/PKnUEYgiov

The young full-back is a Baggie born and bred, but it seems that the alure of Premier League football is too much for him to turn down at the moment. The fans haven’t taken too kindly to the news, though, and it seems many of them are taking a pop at the young player.
Fortunately, Slaven Bilic does have one man who can step into the role on a full-time basis, and that man is the club’s FA Cup 4th round hero Connor Townsend, who lashed in the only goal of the game in West Brom’s most recent win, but it won’t completely take away from the fact that Ferguson is abandoning them at a crucial point in the season.

I can understand him wanting to play in the prem but he could stay till the end of the season

Are we likely to try and get a replacement?

Not that bothered, if you dont want to be here then its best he leaves and get the most money possible

Unfortunate. Saw it coming though

Unbelievable really, he’s had about 3-4 good games, that’s it and now thinks he’s too good for us. Even more frustrating knowing Bilic started him over Townsend last night.

Obviously chasing the cash

The supporters are far from happy with their young player, and will be desperate to come up against him next season in the Premier League.
