The Express and Star journalist Joseph Masi has admitted that he believes Huddersfield Town forward Karlan Grant will sign for West Brom in this window.
As it stands, Masi claimed that Huddersfield aren’t in favour of the Baggies current offer for the 22-year-old, with talks ongoing between the two clubs.
The Daily Mail has reported that Grant is desperate to move to the Hawthorns, and could force his club’s hand after missing their opening day defeat against Norwich.
Masi claimed that negotiations are ongoing and that he is confident that Grant will become a Baggies player this month.
“However they want that money, Albion are not in favour of it,” he said on the Baggies Broadcast podcast.
“They want to spread it out over more payments and as of yet, Huddersfield aren’t in favour of that which is their right, he’s their player.
“What we understand is that negotiations are still ongoing, they’re trying to strike a deal. There’s a big part of me that thinks it will happen.
“Look, Karlan Grant isn’t involved for Huddersfield at the moment, he’s made it abundantly clear to the club that he wants to leave, he’s posting weird tweets that suggest he wants to leave.
With Grant reportedly desperate to move to the Hawthorns, it appears the only hurdle to pass is the payment structure the Baggies need to agree too.
West Brom clearly don’t have bucket loads of cash to spend after the signing of Grady Diangana, and they can’t pay the £16million asking price upfront.
Grant is clearly looking to force an exit, and that is something that could force the Terriers to lower their asking price.
Masi seems confident that this deal can happen, and the Baggies currently have one more month to get it over the line.
