Free agent midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker is set to return to the Premier League after agreeing to join West Brom, according to the Daily Mail.

Reo-Coker has been without a club since mid-January after turning down the chance to extend his three-month spell at Championship strugglers Ipswich Town, who he joined after also being released by Bolton Wanderers following the club relegation from the Premier League.

The former Wimbledon, West Ham and Aston Villa midfielder was linked with moves to a number of Premier League clubs, including linking up with a Sunderland managed by his former Villa boss Martin O’Neill, but the 28-year-old has opted to join Steve Clarke’s West Brom on a free transfer.

The Daily Mail report that Reo-Coker has turned down the chance of a move to the MLS with Portland Timbers in favour of having another crack at the Premier League with West Brom.

Clarke made the move to bring in Reo-Coker after failing to make a single new addition in the January transfer window, which coupled with West Brom’s form and slide down the table has put pressure on the rookie manager.

He did, however, manage to hold on to striker Peter Odemwingie after rejecting offers from Queens Park Rangers in the final hours of the transfer window.
