West Brom are being linked with a move for Preston North End defender Greg Cunningham.

According to an exclusive report from HITC Sport, the Baggies are identifying potential targets ahead of the summer transfer window, with the club destined for relegation this season.

Championship football awaits for West Brom and it seems they are starting their preparations early, with Preston star Cunningham one name under consideration.

The 27-year-old is an established Republic of Ireland international, who has been in good form for Preston throughout the course of the season.

Cunningham is a vital cog in Preston’s team and due to some impressive displays in the Championship this term, plenty of interest has built from elsewhere ahead of the summer transfer window.

However, if the Baggies are to make a serious move for the left-back this summer, it seems they will be met with stiff competition. It’s claimed by HITC that Fulham, who will be hoping to secure promotion to the Premier League this season, are also keen.
