West Brom to return for Jeffrey Schlupp

Baggies plan fresh attempt for Schlupp

West Bromwich Albion are prepared to make a renewed bid for Jeffrey Schlupp when the transfer window reopens in the New Year. The Leicester City midfielder was the subject of multiple bids from the Baggies last summer.

The 23-year-old was one among the prime targets for the Baggies in the summer months, but unfortunately a deal could not be materialised.

According to The Mirror, Baggies boss Tony Pulis still has hope of signing the Ghana international after the winger snubbed a fresh contract with the Premier League champions.

The West Midlands side currently have the financial backing from new owner Guochuan Lai, and they are prepared to lure Schlupp on a long-term contract with a substantial pay rise.

Schlupp has made a solitary league start for Leicester City this season, coming in a demoralizing 3-0 defeat versus Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
