West Brom have held talks about the possible signing of Brighton defender Shane Duffy, a report from The Daily Mail has claimed.
Having been a regular for Brighton in recent years, Duffy found himself further down the pecking order at The AMEX Stadium during the course of the 2019/20 season, making just 12 league appearances across the course of the campaign.
Now it seems as though a move elsewhere could be on the cards for Duffy, with the latest reports claiming that the Baggies have had discussions with Brighton about bringing the 28-year-old to The Hawthorns ahead of their return to the Premier League.
Taking to Twitter to react to these reports, plenty of West Brom fans were keen to have their say on the possibility of signing Duffy, with many making comparisons with Besiktas defender Domagoj Vida, who has also been linked with the Baggies in recent weeks.
Here, we take a look at what some of those supporters had to say.
Don’t know much about him but we always do it best when we go for this type of player

Not a bad option. Me personally would prefer Vida but I imagine that Vida is on higher wages.
