What a waste of wages. I severely hope this is a short term contract weighted heavily in our favour.

He is not a bad player, just a very very very average one....

BBC also running with it, I cannot believe this signing, This club looks almost certain to be relegated in my eyes unless some decent players come in

Does it really surprise you though? Not me.

To put it into perspective:

Stoke - Bony
Palace - Benteke / Remy
Boro - Negredo

Would be very disappointed if he is the only signing for striker position, lack of quality at all.

I wouldn't mind signing someone on a free if they were really good and 'an improvement on what we already have'. However, this guy has proven to be a championship plodder for years. You just knew it would happen though didn't you? You have to laugh.

Free agent Hal Robson-Kanu is travelling to the Midlands for a medical ahead of a proposed move to West Bromwich Albion.

The 27-year-old's contract was not extended by Reading at the end of last season, yet he shone for Wales at Euro 2016 and became a national hero.

His memorable goal against Belgium, helped Wales seal a 3-1 win and a place in the semi-finals.


The former Arsenal trainee played against West Brom last season in Reading's 3-1 FA Cup fifth round win at the Madeski Stadium in February.

Albion were linked with Robson-Kanu, able to play on the either wing or up front, earlier this summer.

Tony Pulis was in France during Euro 2016 working as a pundit with ITV and may well have taken a closer look at his compatriot.

If it looks like we're keeping berahino, and we have Rondon, then at least Kanu is a better option than Vic or lambert.

Really underwhelming though.

If this is anything other than a one year, appearance based deal, we're idiots.

Christ, he's a free agent too. We can sign him, if we really have to, when we don't need the medical staff free for someone good.

I'm usually quite positive, but make room for me in the mob of villagers brandishing pitch forks.

He is pretty bad, he had a decent Euro's but we've seen over and over again the dangers of buying players based on tournaments.

With this said the only surprise is its taken this long, he's basically a worse version of Jon Walters. Pulis loves that kind of player.
