Trejo interested in Baggies move

Real Mallorca striker Oscar Trejo wants to hold talks with West Brom over a possible January move to the Barclays Premier League's bottom club.

The Argentinian was amongst Baggies boss Tony Mowbray's summer transfer targets but any hopes of a deal floundered when Mallorca slapped a £4million-plus fee on the 20-year-old.

Trejo's agent Martan Paledes said: "There is a possibility to move Trejo but we need to think carefully about it and find out exactly what West Brom want to do."

He added: "We are waiting for a meeting with West Brom and we will see what they want. Mallorca want the player and West Brom want him, so we will have to try to help both and help the player.

"We are very interested in taking him to the Premier League and to West Brom. We have good relations and we will try to help them."

Mowbray has admitted he will have to sell to fund any January signings and indicated last week that loans were the more likely option. And he conceded any players who move to the Hawthorns next month have to be ready to make their mark in the battle to stay in the top flight.

He said: "Trejo hasn't played a lot of football for Mallorca this year and we need players who can come in and make an impact.

"When Trejo was on the radar last year it was a case of trying to build up a squad.

"He was a young player and I wasn't thinking he was going to knock the Premier League over and score 20 goals.

"He is a talented boy who plays in an area of the pitch that I thought would have helped our team."
