West Brom manager Steve Clarke will try to sign Morgan Amalfitano on a permanent deal as soon as the transfer window re-opens, according to the Mirror.

Amalfitano, 28, who is on loan from French side Marseille has impressed everyone at the club in his first three games, grabbing two goals - one of which came in the stunning victory against Premier League champions Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Amalfitano, who is a creative midfielder, has added a new dimension to West Brom's counter attacks. He also won his first cap against Germany for the French national side in February last year.

He would be very interested in a permanent move to the Premier League as it has been made clear to him that he is surplus to requirements at his parent club, Marseille.

I am sure other clubs have also been impressed by Amalfitano's performances and Clarke will need to move quick to secure a permanent deal for the player because, as we all know, when it comes to transfer windows: if you snooze, you lose.  

Amalfitano, who signed for Marseille on a free transfer back in 2011, scored three goals in his time at the French club, making 16 assists.

He played 49 games in his first season, it was an up and down campaign for the club though which resulted in them missing out on the Champions League for the following season, which led to Amalfitano handing in a transfer request. 

It would seem to be quite a straight-forward deal to capture Amalfitano as Marseille are happy for him to leave for the right price, and the player has wanted out of Marseille for over a year now.

The signing of Amalfitano would be a welcomed boost for the Baggies, who have found it difficult to attract good players this summer due to the financial constraints on the club.
