Welcome to Read West Brom’s deadline day live blog for the January transfer window 2016. We’ll have updates throughout the day on all the latest coming’s and going’s at The Hawthorns.


Pritchard has joined on loan

Sandro also joined on loan earlier in the window

Outgoings look unlikely

Newcastle, Spurs, and Stoke fighting for Berahino

Berahino has finally spoken out and with that we can all go to bed. Thanks for reading. Here’s to a successful 2016.

The updates are getting less and less we may have to start a quiz on our Twittter…

Nothing is happening the shop is shut. Berahino and Pulis must have gone home when they left the training ground early. Surely we’d have heard something if it was going to happen this late… We’ve been asking this anyway…

4 hours left.

I’ve been doing this since around 9am, this morning and all I have to bring you in the loan signing of Pritchard which we knew last night. Every passing minute makes it look more and more unlikely that anything will happen, but we can dream. Pull a rabbit out of the hat Tony.

T-minus 4 hours 30 minutes till meltdown…

We also have just under 5 hours to save my Twitter account. Not sure I’ll be able to cope until the summer. I’d take Alan Hutton at this point. Feel free to follow me, I’ll follow you back and I promise my tweets will be good in 2019.


It’s all gone a little quiet but there’s still plenty of time… Wait is that Carlton Cole in the canteen again?


Unfortunately it’s Victor Anichebe;

Reports are coming out of the Liverpool Echo that Albion were interested in Everton full-back Bryan Oviedo. Albion looked at the possibility of a loan signing but Everton were reluctant to let him go.


How about this for some late drama? We have all the details here – http://readwestbrom.com/2016/02/01/odds-slashed-leicester-sign-albion-star/

It’s starting to heat up…

Alex Pritchard has been speaking to the club via Albion’s Twitter account. There’re some great quotes in there about how he chose Albion, his tough start to the season, playing for England and playing through the leagues.

It’s not transfer news but we’ve got nothing else to talk about at the moment. Albion’s replay against Peterborough has been moved to Wednesday and will be live on the BBC. Chris Brunskill/Getty Images Sport

We asked what position you think we should strengthen and we had some very different responses….



We’re all asking this…

Everyone seems to be reporting the same thing, but never say never;

Looks like Poco will be staying. Wolves were the favourites to sign him on loan at one point.

Interesting this from the club 2/4 pictures from training include Berahino despite Dave Kemp saying he only took part in the warm up. A warning to potential buyers?

It’s the middle of the day lull so we ran a caption competition on our Twitter;

8 hours to go!

The clock is ticking… Does anybody know where Saido is?


Mark Hughes has been speaking about Saido Berahino in his press conference;

There’s not much happening at all. We wait on Berahino news. In a bit of former Albion player news, Dorrans looks set to be joining Burnley on loan.

One time Albion target James Tarkowski is having a medical at Burnley;

Good news coming out of the press conference regarding two players.

In Tony Pulis’ absence Dave Kemp has given us the latest on Saido Berahino and it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere…
