West Brom are considering a summer bid for Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas according to The Daily Mail.

Manager Steve Clarke has travelled to Holland alongside the club’s European scout Tony Spearing to assess the credentials of the Czech youngster.

Kalas is contracted to Chelsea but is currently playing on loan in the Eredivisie for Dutch side Vitesse Arnhem.

The Baggies are in the market for a right-back after seeing Steven Reid struggle for fitness and Billy Jones failing to impress.

Chelsea are thought to be keen to see Kalas continue to play first team football and are open to suggestions regarding a loan offer.

West Brom have a good working relationship with the Stamford Bridge side on account of Clarke’s former connections with the club where he was a coach.

The Champions League winners organised a similar arrangement with the club this season which saw Romelu Lukaku join the Black Country side on a season-long loan.

Kalas is thought to have a bright future at the club but is unlikely to break into the first team ahead of Serbian defender Branislav Ivanovic.

A loan deal could see the youngster gain some valuable experience of first-team football in the English top flight.
