West Brom are closing in on a deal for Everton defender Mason Holgate, most likely a loan. Will provide competition at both RB and CB. Deal could be completed early next week. More on @ExpressandStar #wba #efc

Mason holgate from Everton on loan according to E & S and Sunday Mail. Medical tomorrow. Should help solve the right back problem 😊

Can't harm us in any way. Still hope we sign a permanent proper right back though. Loans are OK to a point but what do we do at the end of the season when they go back?

Mason Holgate isn't a bad player at all - 50 odd Premier League appearances over the last few years show that - but he isn't the RB we need. His favoured position is at CB. Sound familiar?  ::)

Also, why are we not looking to build a team for the future? Most of our squad will be released or go back to their clubs at the end of the season. More disappointment from Jenkins.

Holgate is a centre back pressed into action at full back. Reminds me of Andre Wisdom. Will be a poor signing.

He's better than Wisdom.

At worst he is a better alternate centre back than Bartley.

From what I have seen of him he is better than Wisdom who is truly awful

Mears is better than Wisdom. It's an identical signing to the Wisdom signing and not what we need. We need an actual right fullback.

Perhaps we're thinking of cashing in on Craig Dawson or, heaven forbid, Hegazi.


Can't see it. We are light at the back. Our only CB cover is Bartley then after that you are looking at Tosin but he's being used at RB or Howkins who makes Bartley look half decent.

Holgate should go straight in at RB, not a natural fullback but much better than Tosin who is nothing close to a natural RB.

I've given up all hope of this club planning for the future, and thanks to that the squad is f***ed whatever league we're in next season, so I'll be pretty happy with anyone that improves the starting 11.

I agree but who says Holgate is coming in to be RB?

Holgate neatly summarises the loan v permanent dilema. A England under 21 international who has some Premier League experience probably wouldn't sign at this stage of career if he has to move on from Everton I would guess he would find a slot at a Premier League club. He is probably better than most players who we might sign permanently e.g. Tavernier.

I personally would be happier with the better player particularly if we are signing players who would need to be replaced almost immediately if we were promoted.

We don't need a back up centre back.

A back up CB and RB. I think that is decent recruitment myself particularly as a loan signing.

He's an England U21 international who has played RB in the Premier League, we're desperate for a better RB, it's obvious where he's being signed to play.

Sky sources said he was going out on loan a couple of weeks ago, Matt Wilson is reporting it as a done deal. Kudos to the club for acting quickly.

Madness how some people turn everything into a negative. We need cover at RB and CH and look like getting an England u21 regular, with prem experience, who can cover both and still no good? Really?
Not saying he's a world beater but if he went to Leeds or Norwich I'd be gutted.

Holgate isn't a right back. He's a centre half who looks like a fish out of water when playing full back

From Everton on twitter. Very good at center half apparently

Agreed, people should be a bit more positive like their old pal, Fritzl  ;D

Doubt it, if they had that in mind i'm 100% sure they'd have done it with Tosin.
