West Brom sign Wigan’s Callum McManaman

According to BBC Sport, West Bromwich Albion have completed a deal to sign Wigan Athletic winger Callum McManaman for around £4.75M.

Albion had two previous offers rejected for the 23-year-old, but have now agreed a fee. McManaman is Wigan’s joint-top scorer this season, but has endured a difficult campaign with the Latics, who are currently in the relegation zone and eight points adrift of safety.

West Brom are also looking to pull off a survival job, and new head coach Tony Pulis has identified players with his backroom staff who could better their fortunes. Pulis has enjoyed an upturn in form since taking over, and the likes of McManaman’s pace could stretch the opposition, while providing industry when defending.
