Dean Jones believes that a move to West Bromwich Albion would be a great way to revitalise Hamza Choudhury’s career.
The 23-year-old has very much been a bit-part player for Brendan Rodgers’ side this season, only appearing in three Premier League games so far this campaign. And his lack of playing time even goes back to last season where he only played twenty times, with just ten of them starts.
And speaking on the latest edition of Touchline Talk, Jones thinks that a move to West Bromwich Albion, with the Baggies reportedly in pole position to bring the £7.2m-rated man on board, could be the kickstart that he needs:
“Depends on Brendan Rodgers. I mean, he’s saying that he doesn’t ideally want to lose him, but you can understand that the player needs game time.
“He’s a really good player. It would be something for him to relish, I think, the chance to prove himself in a situation like that, and then go back into Leicester – especially his position, you know, he would be in the heart of the midfield and the real heartbeat of the side. So I think it’d be an interesting move for him.”
Would West Brom be a good fit for Hamza Choudhury?
TIF Thoughts on Jones’ opinion about Hamza Choudhury’s future…
Whilst Jones’ words might be focused more on what a move could do for Choudhury, a ‘prove yourself’ kind of move would also be a great benefit to West Bromwich Albion. Given the position they are in, they are going to need as many fighters as they can get.
And if they can get in a player like Choudhury, who needs to prove something to Leicester City – a team that, with a bit of luck, could be set for another stab at European football next season given their position in the table – then what he’ll be able to bring to the table in terms of a mentality as well as his impressive skillset will be just what they need in their battle to stay up.
