West Brom fans have been reacting to the news surrounding their football club – this time, responding to the news suggesting that one of their youngsters may be close to joining League One side Ipswich Town.

This comes as according to Ipswich-based outlet TWTD, the Portman Road outfit are ‘closing in’ on Rekeem Harper, with the fee understood to be somewhere in the region of £500,000. Baggies fans were quick to respond, with the post receiving a lot of replies from supporters who weren’t shy to share their opinions.

Judging by the replies, Albion fans have mixed feelings about the sale of the 21-year-old.

Harper has come through the academy at West Brom and got his debut at the club against Bournemouth in the Premier League on the first day of the 2017/18 season, and in the process became only the second person born in this century to make a top-flight appearance.

Harper spent last season on loan at , where the defensive midfielder earned himself a WhoScored rating of 6.21 for his performances as Birmingham finished 18th in the league, nine points above the relegation zone.
