West Brom set to ask Cherries to name their price for Wilson

West Brom set to ask Cherries to name their price for Wilson

AFC Bournemouth will reportedly be asked by West Bromwich Albion what fee it would take for the Cherries to sell defender Marc Wilson.

Wilson re-joined AFC Bournemouth in August 2016 for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £1.5million.

The 29 year old however failed to make a Premier League appearance for the Cherries, instead making just 2 EFL and 1 FA Cup appearance, totalling 225 minutes of football.

In January he surprisingly joined up with his former Stoke City manager Tony Pulis at West Bromwich Albion on a half season loan deal.

In February, AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe claimed Wilson had been allowed to move as...

'...we felt we could not stand in Marc`s way after the reasons he gave, which will remain private'.

Wilson later claimed...

' head was down a little bit. I don`t think I was too suited to the environment down there (at Bournemouth).

Wilson has since made 3 Premier League appearances for West Brom and according to the, Pulis would like to sign Wilson on a permanent deal in the summer.

The newspaper claimed...

'Albion will ask Bournemouth to slap a price-tag on Marc Wilson as Tony Pulis looks into the possibility of signing the Cherries loanee on a permanent deal.'

The report added...

'He still has a year left on his Bournemouth contract, but it`s believed the Cherries will only want to recuperate [sic] around £1m for a player who has failed to impress Howe.'

Decent squad member given his versatility so this was a sensible signing for us, just unfortunate re domestic issues. - Join the conversation here.
