West Bromwich Albion are set to drop a club-record £18m on West Ham United forward Grady Diangana.

The deal to bring Diangana to the Hawthorns – where he spent last season on loan from the Hammers – is likely to eclipse the £15m the Baggies paid RB Leipzig for Oliver Burke in 2017.

England U21 international Diangana played a key role in West Brom’s promotion to the Premier League last campaign, notching 8 goals and registering 7 assists in 30 Championship games under former West Ham manager Slaven Bilic.

It’s believed the 22-year-old is still yet to complete a medical and agree personal terms in the West Midlands, with it understood the Baggies are keen to sew up the deal ahead of the start of the new top flight season.

The £18m fee is said to be an initial £12m for the player with £6m in performance-related bonuses.

What a shambles of a club. Selling one of the best players at a time when we should be brining the youth through. What kind of message of ambition does this send to the likes of Declan Rice?
