West Brom are looking to secure a loan deal for Marseille right-back Brice Dja Djedje, according to Simon Jones of the Daily Mail.

According to the report, Marseille are looking for a sale, but with funds tight at Albion, Tony Pulis is hoping to bring the 25-year-old in on loan with a view to making the deal permanent in the summer. Whether the French side will accept a deal remains to be seen.

Dja Djedje has made 10 Ligue 1 appearances for Marseille this season but the French side look happy to let him go as they have Javier Manquillo, a name familiar to Liverpool fans after he was there last season, on loan from Atletico Madrid.

The full-back has seven caps for his native Ivory Coast, although his last appearance was back in October 2014, so a move to the Premier League could appeal to him if he wishes to get back in the international fold.
