Sky Sports pundit and former Premier League player and manager Tim Sherwood has been discussing West Bromwich Albion and their January transfer window.
This comes after Sherwood recently made an appearance on Soccer Saturday where he spoke about a number of topics concerning the Premier League.
Speaking prior to West Brom’s Premier League match against Wolverhampton Wanderers, in which Sam Allardyce’s side won 3-2, Sherwood had this to say on the matter of the Baggies’ January transfer window, suggesting what the boss could expect from the club’s owners and the market itself.
He said: “They would have promised him money to spend, but where’s he going to spend it?
“It’s very difficult in this market, it’s always difficult in the January market, but in this [pandemic] market I think it’s even more difficult.
“He’s got [Robert] Snodgrass in – yes, he’s someone who is reliable, tried and tested in the Premier League, but he needs to find another four or five of those, I would suggest, to give himself an opportunity.”
As Sherwood mentioned, West Brom’s first piece of business this month saw them bring in Robert Snodgrass from fellow Premier League side West Ham United on an 18-month deal.
TIF Thoughts on Tim Sherwood’s comments on West Brom and their January transfer window…
Despite having already brought in a new player to boost their squad this month, we agree with Sherwood that the club should perhaps look at bringing in some more players to help give them the best chance of staying up.
It could be argued that with Allardyce only recently arriving, in order to implement his ideas quickly, he may be more successful in pulling that off if he was able to recruit ‘ready-made’ players to The Hawthorns.
How many players do you think West Brom will sign this month?
However, with the club having won against Wolves, this could be a good starting point for them to get a good run of results under their belt and try and get out of danger moving forward with what they already have.
