Hourihane has just one year left on his deal at Aston Villa and was farmed out on loan for the second half of last season, so links (via The Athletic) with him moving to The Hawthorns may not be too surprising.
Will West Brom be promoted next season?
He was only handed three Premier League starts last season under Dean Smith, so a move to the Championship could reignite the latter years of his career.
A lot of West Brom fans appear to be delighted on Twitter over this potential signing.
What have these West Brom fans had to say?
“Get it done”
“Would be very happy with this signing”
“Would be a smashing signing.”
“Great player get him in”
“He’d be a good signing. Him and Mowatt would be class #wba“
“Take him all day”
“He’s a top top top player”
Hourihane has proved himself many times in the Championship having amassed 145 appearances in England’s second tier with both Barnsley, Aston Villa and Swansea City, so he would bring a wealth of experience to the side.
West Brom have had quite a successful transfer window thus far, with two new additions to the squad, while they have so far managed to keep hold of their top players such as Matheus Pereira, Sam Johnstone and Kyle Bartley.
