If West Bromwich Albion want to secure the signature of Derby County striker Matej Vydra, the club will have to pay around £11 million to bring him to the Hawthorns – and pay wages of around £30,000 according to the Birmingham Mail, if they are to beat Leeds United to the strikers signature.

Vydra scored 22 goals last season for Derby County and has been linked with a move to Elland Road for several weeks now. It’s thought that the striker is to be sold during this transfer window to either one of West Brom or Leeds United – but it could be set to become a battle as to who is prepared to spend the most money on the striker.

Vydra has been central to a tug of war contest between the two Championship heavyweights, and it is believed that the striker is set to leave Derby County – despite his impressive goal record for the sheer cost of the striker’s wages.

Vydra is one of the most prolific, and most reliable strikers in the Championship and would be a valuable asset to either club if they were to come in with a deal for the gifted striker.

With Marcelo Bielsa assuming the head coaching role at Leeds United, his record with player development, in particular with attacking football would suggest that the club could be set to break the bank for Vydra, although with the options of Jerry Mbakogu and Abel Hernandez also available, slapping up a big bid on Vydra is not the be all, and end all for Leeds in this transfer window.
