West Ham are to allow winger Robert Snodgrass depart the club to join Premier League strugglers West Bromwich Albion. The attacking midfielder has been deemed surplus to requirements at the Hammers, with the club closing on alternative targets in the January transfer window.
The player has been informed by manager David Moyes that he will not be used for the remainder of the campaign, and thus the Scottish international will become West Brom manager Sam Allarydce‘s first signing at the club since he returned to Premier League football.
It is understood that Snodgrass will sign an 18 month contract with the Baggies, and will leave the East London side for a fee in the region of £4.75 million, with the player earning around £70,000 per week.
WBA currently lie in 19th position in the Premier League table, and hope that Snodgrass will bring the creativity and the goals that will help secure top flight survival for another campaign.
