West Brom interested in Russian Premier League defender

West Brom have an interest in signing Akhmat Grozny left-back Milad Mohammadi, as per a report by the Daily Mail.

The Baggies are in the hunt for some more defensive options and have seen a bid turned down by League One side Luton Town for Jack Stacey, as reported by The72 earlier today.

Mohammadi, who like Stacey can play as either a full-back or winger, is a new name to be linked with Darren Moore’s side.

The Baggies have so far signed Sam Johnstone from Manchester United, Jonathan Bond on a free transfer, Kyle Bartley from Swansea City and Harvey Barnes on loan from Leicester City. They now want some more acquisitions before the Championship season kicks off.

A move for Milad Mohammadi is a deal that West Brom could pursue between now and the end of the transfer window. The 24-year-old was at the World Cup last month with Iran and played in all three of their games in the knock-out stages.

Mohammadi currently plays his football in the Russian Premier League for Akhmat Grozny. He joined them in February 2016 and has since become a key player for them.

He started his career in Iran with spells as a youngster at Persepolis, Damash Tahran and Niroo Zamini before joining Rah Ahan Tehran in 2014. He impressed in his two years with them and earned a move to Russia.

Although he will be an unknown quantity to West Brom fans, Milad Mohammadi has experience of playing top level football in Russia and has played in a World Cup so must have something about him.
