“Going forward, I want to help the club reach their true potential. I feel like, at a club the size of Albion, this is a great opportunity for me to help drive the team with the attributes I think I have.

West Bromwich Albion are strongly interested in signing Theo Walcott from Southampton
From Jacob Tanswell and Dan Sheldon: Athleticism understands the current offer is a one-year loan, but would see Walcott run out of his current contract at St Mary’s. It is believed that the terms of the deal still need to be worked out before it is finalized, but West Brom are keen to sign the former England international. Walcott has yet to feature for Southampton this season but remains happy at the club and would return to Ralph Hasenhuttl’s first team if the deal falls through, although that remains unlikely at this stage. West Brom are trying to free up some cash to make sure that happens.

Wolves ‘unlikely’ to sign a defender
Earlier today it was confirmed that Willy Boly had left Wolves for Nottingham Forest. According Athleticism Steve Madeley and Bruno Lage have made it ‘clear’ that they want an experienced defender to replace the Ivory Coast defender but that now looks unlikely as the transfer window nears the deadline.
As we have just said on the @TheAthleticUK live show, it now looks unlikely that Wolves will sign a centre-back tonight.
Interesting development as Lage was pretty clear last night that he wanted an experienced figure to replace Boly and complement Collins, Kilman, Toti. #WWFC
