Manchester United send scouts to watch West Brom star

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has reportedly sent scouts on three separate occasions to run the rule over West Brom midfielder Claudio Yacob.

Yacob only signed for the Baggies on a free transfer during the summer after leaving Racing Club de Avellaneda, but it would now appear the 25-year-old could be granted a high-profile move to Manchester United.

According to The People, Manchester United have posted representatives to watch Yacob in his last three games for West Brom as Ferguson scours the market for midfield reinforcements.

The Manchester United boss is reported to be keen to bring a defensive midfielder to Old Trafford in the January transfer window, and Yacob has seemingly been identified as a potential recruitment.

Yacob has been one of the star performers in a West Brom team to have impressed this season under Steve Clarke and his performances at the Hawthorns could lead to even greater things.

Manchester United are without a recognised midfield enforcer and Yacob could provide Ferguson with the anchor he is after, although the Argentina international will surely attract interest from elsewhere if he continues to perform to distinction.

Yacob was part of the Argentina side that won the under-20 World Cup in 2007 and has made three senior appearances for his country.
