West Brom chasing move for Jack Rodwell

West Bromwich Albion are chasing Everton’s former star midfielder, Jack Rodwell, according to the Mirror.

Rodwell is seeking a move away from Manchester City, as he looks to revive what looked to be a promising career, which has stalled following a move to the Premier League champions.

City paid Everton £12million for the midfielder just two years ago, but the 23-year-old has failed to break into the starting 11, managing just 25 games for the club.

Rodwell was out of action for a large part of his first season at the Etihad, due to a hamstring injury, and was left out of the squad for the majority of last season, making only two first-team starts.

It is unclear whether the Baggies will look to bring Rodwell in on a permanent deal, or year-long loan, but the new boss, Alan Irvine, is keen on the player that he knows well from his time at Everton.

Rodwell currently earns a whopping £40,000-per-week at City, which could prove difficult for any club chasing the central midfielder.

Irvine has said “He was a Rolls Royce as a kid but I don’t know his situation.”

“He’s had some injury problems but is a talent player. City bought him for a huge amount of money, so I can’t imagine he would be available for a small fee.”

Irvine is looking to strengthen the squad as soon as possible to avoid a repeat of last season’s relegation battle.
