West Brom reportedly launched an offer to sign Yerry Mina from Palmeiras last January.

According to a report from the Catalan newspaper Sport, as covered in a report by Sport Witness today, the Colombian defender was the subject of an €18m offer from West Brom back in the January transfer window. However, their approach to sign Mina was rebuffed by the Brazilian club.

It’s stated that Leicester are also exploring the possibility of landing Mina this summer, but the player himself is keen on remaining in South America to further his development.

Lots of European heavyweights have been linked with a move for the 22-year-old as well. Barcelona and Manchester City have both been touted with interest as the composed defender’s stock continues to rise.

Tony Pulis will make a renewed move for Leeds United defender Charlie Taylor in January as he seeks to solve West Brom ’s search for a left-back. Pulis is set to offer around £4 million for Taylor when the transfer window reopens and attempt to persuade Leeds owner Massimo Cellino to agree a deal.

Interestingly, it’s claimed that Barca have an option to sign Mina for just €9m if they want to this summer, which could be an attractive proposition for both parties.

Whether or not West Brom make an offer in the summer is yet to be seen, but Mina certainly won’t be short of potential suitors.

West Brom in talks with Southampton over £12m rated Jay Rodriguez .
West Brom have re-opened talks with Southampton over a deal to sign Jay Rodriguez for £12 million. The Telegraph reports that the player is keen on a move to the Hawthorns this summer as Tony Pulis has tried to sign the player on two previous occasions. Southampton will allow the player to leave during the summer transfer window after falling down the pecking order at St Mary’s. West Brom hope to complete a deal by the end of the month but the transfer may be held up by Southampton, who are looking to appoint a new manager following the dismissal of Claude Puel. Newcastle had expressed an interest in the Englishman but the winger is thought to prefer the prospect of a move to West Brom. Pulis reportedly has around £40 million to spend this summer after meeting with club officials. Adding goals to his squad is certainly expected to be high on his to-do list.
