West Brom and Swansea are among just some of the clubs to have shown interest in left-sided Greek centre-back Dimitrios Siovas, according to the Daily Mail.

The 29-year old Greece international has been starring for Leganés in La Liga this season, playing in 12 games and keeping seven clean sheets in the process.

The 6ft 4in centre half can also play as a holding midfielder, and is understood to have a release clause set at just £10million.

West Brom are weighing up potential targets with Jonny Evans’ future not yet clear. Manchester City and Arsenal are just two clubs to have registered an interest in the Northern Ireland international.

West Brom’s Chinese owners are expected to be travelling ot the Midlands this weekend to watch the Baggies match against Brighton, where they will also discuss their transfer budget for Alan Pardew to utilise this window.

West Brom's move for Mitrovic depends on Evans' future .
According to Sky Sports, West Brom’s pursuit of Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic depends on whether or not they sell Jonny Evans this month. The Baggies have been linked with Serbia international Mitrovic for some weeks now but no move has materialised just yet. The former Anderlecht man is keen to leave Newcastle as he goes in search of regular first-team game time. However, West Brom are currently in a precarious financial position and will need to raise funds before they press ahead with their plans to land Mitrovic, if Sky Sports are to be believed. Evans has been touted with moves to many big clubs in recent times. Manchester City and Arsenal have been heavily linked with the Northern Ireland international in the last couple of transfer windows and both clubs remain without depth in central defence. Alan Pardew wants to keep Evans at the club but faces a dilemma, with the Baggies boss also keen to bolster his West Brom squad.
