Diego Lugano close to moving to the Baggies?

According to the Birmingham Mail and various French sources this evening, such as Canal +, Diego Lugano is close to a move to West Brom. It is said that negotiations have started and the player is expected to fly to England imminently to continue talks, with the deal supposedly being done as quickly as this weekend. All these reports are unconfirmed by us at this stage.

The 32 year old Uruguayan centre back received limited playing time with PSG in the first half of last season before making a loan move to Malaga. That move did not turn permanent, however, and currently the player is back in Paris looking for a way out of the club. It is highly likely that the player would want a move to the Premier League and therefore West Brom, but at the age of 32 and definitely past his best, it would seem like a strange move from the Baggies.

We shall keep you posted at the latest developments.
