West Brom close to securing Chester deal

West Bromwich Albion have agreed a fee with Hull City for defender James Chester, according to Sky Sports.

The centre-back moved to the KC Stadium in January 2011, and has since racked up one hundred and seventy-two appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring eight goals – one of which came in the defeat to Arsenal in the 2014 FA Cup final.

Internationally, the twenty-six year old has won six caps for Wales – the last of which came in last month’s Euro 2016 qualifying victory over Belgium.

He began his career with Manchester United, but made just one appearance for the club before being shipped out on loan in spells with Carlisle United, Plymouth Argyle and Peterborough United.

Crystal Palace and Southampton have also been linked with a move to secure Chester’s services, though it is West Brom who appear to be winning the race with the new season set to commence a week on Saturday.
