West Brom’s stance on move for Derby County standout revealed after claims of nearing deal

West Brom are not interested in signing Derby County’s out of contract forward Tom Lawrence, the Express and Star has said.

Derby County star Lawrence is among the number of players out of contract at Pride Park this summer.

As a result, plenty of rumours have been circulation regarding the future of the Rams’ skipper. On Monday night. The Sun reporter Alan Nixon stated on his Patreon that West Brom were ‘homing in’ on a deal for the Welshman, but the Express and Star has now poured cold water on those rumours.

It is said that Lawrence is not a player the Baggies are interested in signing given their existing options on both wings.

West Brom do have a good number of options available on the left and right. Matt Phillips, Grady Diangana, Callum Robinson, Adam Reach and new signing Jed Wallace are all either wingers or capable of playing in the role.

What next for Lawrence?

After a strong season on an individual season that yielded 11 goals and five assists, Lawrence is certainly a level above League One.

His contract is expiring this summer and as it stands he will be heading for free agency and Derby County’s ownership situation means it looks unlikely that he will be signing a new deal before his contract officially ends at the end of this month.

A player of his quality will surely have plenty of options available in the Championship.

However, West Brom look as though they will not be an option for the Wrexham-born attacker as Steve Bruce looks to prepare his ranks for a promotion push ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
