West Brom are keen to find a replacement for Jonny Evans, who is set to leave them over the coming months. He has a release clause of around £3 million and is likely for a move back to the Premier League. Therefore, the Baggies see Flint as an ideal replacement for Evans.

Flint has played for Bristol City for five seasons and has played just under 250 games for them and has scored an impressive 39 goals for them from defence. He poses a threat from corners and set-pieces which make him ideal for West Brom.

He started his career at non-league side Pinxton before moving to Alfreton Town in 2008. He spent three years at Alfreton before being snapped up by Swindon Town in 2011. After three years at Swindon he was signed by Bristol City for just £300,000.
