West Brom already plan to make Jayson Molumby deal permanent

West Brom are already lining up to take the permanent option on the loan deal of Jayson Molumby next season.

Birmingham Live have reported that although it remains a loan option for now, the Brighton player is set for a long future at The Hawthorns.

The Irish international is yet to play for The Albion yet, and could get his chance against former club Millwall.

Joseph Chapman has shared the latest on the future of Molumby, who barring any changes will become the first permanent signing next summer.

“Like Clarke, Molumby has swapped one Albion for another this summer, also coming in from Brighton,” he wrote.

“The difference with his deal, however, is that the club have the option to sign the midfielder permanently next summer, and that’s something which is understood to be already lined up by the Baggies.”

Confidence.

Valerien Ismael must have been blown away by the early impact and what he has seen of Molumby this week.

Having looked at clips from the midfielder and his spells at Millwall, he never stops running, and that is the one thing Ismael demands.

Alex Mowatt and Jake Livermore have been sensational so far this season, and having that senior option behind now was critical.

Quevin Castro has shown glimpses of promise since arriving, but we can’t rely on him massively should a bad injury happen to one of those two.

Molumby solves that issue, and it looks as though he will be here beyond 2022 and this season.
