Doumbia to snub Arsenal for West Brom move

Tongo Doumbia is keen on a move to West Brom despite speculated interest from Arsenal.

ESPN have reported the Rennes midfielder as admitting a move to the Baggies suits him more than a move to a ‘glamorous’ club like the North London outfit.

Doumbia told reporters: “I felt more desire there [at West Brom]. Obviously, it is less glamorous than Arsenal but I’ll be able to continue my progress. I will have more chances to play. This is a championship that thrills everybody. I hope that this is the beginning of a great adventure.”

The 22-year-old has played 47 games for current side Rennes after signing for them in 2009, also scoring twice in that time. He spent much of his youth career bouncing around different French teams before finally being picked up by the Chateauroux B in 2007 and eventually their senior side in 2008.

Doumbia, who made his international debut this year for Mali, is expected to sign for West Brom for a fee in the region of €2.5 million (£1.9 million) within the next few days.

He will be new boss Steve Clarke’s second summer signing after the arrival of former England goalkeeper Ben Foster.
