Steve Bruce is ready to be greedy in the remainder of the transfer window as he eyes new incomings for West Brom, according to Birmingham Live.

The online outlet has reported on its website that a new full-back, as well as another forward, is wanted at The Hawthorns for the promotion push.

The Baggies got their season underway with a 1-1 draw at Middlesbrough over the weekend, with two new signings Jed Wallace and John Swift combining for the goal.

Darnell Furlong and Conor Townsend are the two main options at full-back for Bruce, but he has no real out-and-out competition for both.

If they are ruled out, it turns into square pegs in round holes, so it makes sense for a new option to be targeted before the September 1st deadline.

As for another forward, Daryl Dike is still going to be the main man with Karlan Grant being pushed onto the left once the American is fully fit.

Bruce wants more options and that will make this squad a scary prospect for anyone to face, with Matt Phillips and Grady Diangana also on the bench behind them.


Something this West Brom squad has lacked for years now is brilliant depth.

There has been a clear over-reliance on certain players throughout the seasons with the likes of Grant and Matheus Pereira just two of those that have needed to turn up every single week.

Now with Wallace, Swift and Dike returning from injury, our options are already better but Bruce is in no mood to stop there with two big new signings also wanted.

That is brilliant.

We need to be more ruthless and not continue relying on the old guard with the likes of Kyle Bartley also being bench on the opening weekend.

The new additions will likely be loans or very cheap deals, but if something presents itself, the Baggies will be ready to take full advantage of it, it seems.

We will now all be keeping a close eye on matters at the club ahead of a hugely busy August schedule, with two new signings now potentially on the cards as well.
