These West Brom fans are happy for Nathan Ferguson to leave the Baggies after a new report suggests Crystal Palace interest.
According to The Sun on Sunday (26th January; page 61), Crystal Palace is hoping to sign West Brom defender Ferguson with a bid of £4m for the 19-year-old. This was later relayed to these Baggies fans via WBA Report on Twitter.
So far this season, Ferguson has played 20 matches in the Championship for the Baggies, scoring and assisting both once from the defensive positions (Transfermarkt).
Here are some of the comments from the West Brom fans on Twitter:

Crystal Palace hope to win the race to sign West Brom full-back Nathan Ferguson with a £4M bid.
Spurs, who were closely linked with the 19-year-old earlier this month, have been put off a move.
Ferguson’s contract expires this summer.

Take the money and reinvest it. If he won’t sign take money as it will be a lot better than any compensation imp

I don’t actually think he has played well for months so that’s a decent bid. Looks like he’s got a mistake in him all day.

Take the money and put a decent sell on clause in there. Get rid of him out of our club if we are not good enough for him!!!! Palace though? Really ?

Do you want Nathan Ferguson to leave the Baggies?
Ferguson has a Transfermarkt value of £1.8m, so if the alleged Crystal Palace bid of £4m is true then this looks like a good deal for West Brom.
Berahino mark2 get rid but push for more cash.

What Do We Think?
If Ferguson is happy with joining Crystal Palace, then we see no reason for West Brom to keep hold of the 19-year-old. The financial aspect of the deal also sounds good and could be used to strengthen other areas of Slaven Bilic’s squad.
