Thievy close to West Brom

Thievy Bifouma could join Pepe Mel at West Brom with a season-long loan and option to buy being discussed.

Marca reports that Thievy has left for England, with West Brom to pay €500,000 up front and a further fee of between €3m and €4m to make the transfer permanent.

Thievy has been banished from the Espanyol set-up this month for indiscipline, and has made it clear he wants to leave Cornella-El Prat this month.
