West Brom fans have taken to Twitter to say that they would like to see right-back Nathaniel Clyne head to The Hawthorns ahead of next season.
Clyne, 29, has not kicked a ball this season and was released by Liverpool at the end of June when his contract expired.
The former Southampton full-back is now available on a free transfer and with Albion in need of strengthening their defence for next season, he is someone who fans would like to see snapped up by Slaven Bilic.
Clyne is quite an experienced right-back.
He has 185 Premier League appearances to his name and 14 caps for England but has had issues with injuries in the last couple of years at Anfield.
Kieran Gibbs is in a similar boat to Clyne. He too is vastly experienced, a former England international and a full-back but is also struggling with injuries at this stage of his career.
Do West Brom need a defence that has Gibbs on the left and Clyne on the right? Albion’s physios and medical staff will certainly have their work cut out.
But, then again, Clyne is available for free and the Baggies do need a Premier League-quality right-back if they win promotion now than Nathan Ferguson is leaving.
It remains to be seen if Albion go in for the ex-Bournemouth loanee but these fans seem sure that he would be a good addition to Bilic’s back-four.
Here is a selection of their tweets:
I would take him, I liked him at Liverpool and O’Shea can be a cover/option for both Center back and right back.

If he could avoid injuries that’d be a shrewd bit of business

Lovren and Nataniel Clyne would seem to fit the bill for #wba
