OPINION

Allan Nyom has hardly been someone to divide opinion in his time at West Brom, that is because pretty much the entirety of the club’s fanbase fail to rate the Cameroon international and were glad to see the back of him in the summer.

However the 30-year-old remains on the books at The Hawthorns as he only joined La Liga minnows Leganes on a season-long loan in August and will return to the Black Country in 2019 with another year left on his contract.

Judging by their current form, Darren Moore’s free-scoring side could be back in the Premier League by then, but Nyom must not be anywhere near the Baggies squad based on his displays and lack of game-time in Spain.

Nyom has only managed three appearances for Leganes, with one of them coming off the bench.

In the two games he started, the ex-Watford right-back was on a losing team and in the game he got a four minutes run-out off the bench, Leganes shocked Barcelona with a 2-1 win.

Nyom was hardly crucial in that win – he did get booked despite being on the pitch for a matter of minutes – and his form in Spain has seen him now be named as an unused substitute as many times as he has played.

The Cameroonian was a liability for Albion last season and it seems as though he is quickly becoming one for Leganes despite them being nowhere near the level of most Championship sides in England, let along Premier League.

That is why Moore must ensure that the £35,000-a-week (Spotrac) right-back is offloaded permanently in 2019 so that the West Brom fans, who have been through enough lately, don’t have to bear witness another one of his horrific performances.
