We, Football News, understand that midfielder Morgan Amalfitano will now fly to West Brom today in order to discuss a proposed loan move with Manager Steve Clarke. As reported by L’Equipe on Friday, Marseille and ‘The Baggies’ have reached an agreement for the player to go on loan to the Midlands club with a buy-out clause in the deal. It is now for the player to make the call whether he wants the deal to go through or not. He has been withdrawn from Marseille’s squad today to enable him to do this.
We understand that the player will arrive in time for West Brom’s game vs Swansea at 14.30 local time and will then have discussions with Steve Clarke after the match, who needs to convince him to join. La Provence report that we will know by the end of the day if the player has agreed to sign or not. Amalfitano’s current state of mind regarding this move is currently unknown.
