News broke earlier today that West Bromwich Albion have submitted a £10m bid for Hull City midfielder Jake Livermore. The 27-year-old has made 25 appearances for the Tigers this season mainly featuring out of his natural position and playing at centre back.
We asked the Albion fans on Twitter for their thoughts on Livermore’s potential move to The Hawthorns as Albion wait to make their first signing of this transfer window. It’s fair to say that the potential transfer has split Albion fans in half.
Some fans welcomed the links to the once-capped England international.
Twitter: @ReadWestBrom be a good signing i think if he has gotten over his problems (@stuwbafc)
Twitter: @ReadWestBrom I think he’d be a solid addition but not the star power we’re looking for. British player for £10m is the going rate nowadays. (@AlexRobNewton)
Twitter: @ReadWestBrom We desperately need a central midfielder and Livermore fits the bill and best we are going to do in British market. (@Standaman60)
Some fans on the other hand, weren’t so welcoming of the links.

Although there was an overwhelming feeling that he’d be able to fit straight into the Albion side.
Twitter: @ReadWestBrom Hard-working player that suits Pulis’ system. Would be a solid addition but £10m is steep, but the going rate for British MFs. (@LukeOsmanRS)
Twitter: @ReadWestBrom decent player who seems a good fit in Pulis system, wouldn’t be the worst English player to fill the quota with. (@HulbertJoe)
Finally, it seems the Hull fans speak highly of him.
Twitter: @ReadWestBrom I would take him. Hull fans speak highly of him. I expect Hull to play hardball and I question whether he’s worth £15M. (@DevonBaggies)
Twitter: @ReadWestBrom another 5mil and he would be yours sorry to see him go tho #workhorse (@toddy109)
