West Brom rummage through free transfer bin, hand debuts to former Liverpool and Arsenal men, plus two summer signings

Posted by

Baggies look likely to continue signing spree beyond deadline.

West Bromwich Albion signed two players on Transfer Deadline Day as Allan Nyom and Hal Robson-Kanu moved to The Hawthorns.

Those two additions doubled the number of Baggies summer signings, adding to the earlier arrivals of Matt Phillips and Nacer Chadli.

But Tony Pulis wants more, it seems, and has therefore been rummaging through the free transfer bargain bin.

Clubs are allowed to sign unattached players outside of transfer windows and West Brom have now handed trials to former Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh, 32, and ex-Liverpool midfielder Mohamed Sissoko, 31.

Although neither have yet officially signed for the Black Country outfit, both players will make their West Brom debuts this afternoon as the Baggies take on Delhi Dynamos in a friendly.

Chadli and Nyom also make their first appearances as Pulis’s men look to find some form following three winless games in league and cup.

Sissoko enjoyed his previous taste of English football. During two and a half seasons with Liverpool, the Frenchman won an FA Cup, the 2005 UEFA Super Cup and the 2006 Community Shield.

West Brom would be Chamakh’s fourth Premier League club. His goalscoring record does little to inspire – he’s netted 15 times in 103 top-flight games in England – although he can be a menace in the air.
