New arrivals at West Brom are set to go right down to the wire this month, yet there is one player who supporters are already calling for not to be signed.
West Brom are rivalling Crystal Palace, Brighton and Southampton for Spurs full-back Kyle Walker-Peters.
The 22-year-old is valued at £12M but Spurs could be persuaded to let him leave on loan for the rest of the season.

The Daily Mail report that West Brom have joined the stacked competition for Tottenham defender Kyle Walker-Peters, with plenty of Premier League clubs also interested in the 22-year-old fullback this January, who is looking increasingly likely to leave Spurs.
Do West Brom have the best squad in the Championship?
Despite having Premier League experience and being fairly young, some West Brom supporters on social media didn’t think Walker-Peters would be a smart signing for the Baggies this window, with fans hoping an attacker can be brought in this month rather than a fullback.
Here’s what a few West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about the club’s reported interest in Walker-Peters…

A rightback? We have Furlong, still have Ferguson and O’Shea has played decently there

£12m for a position that’s not needed to be filled atm. Not for now thanks.
