Happy if this is completed and yes seems more of a Morrison replacement rather than Harvey Barnes replacement.

Don't get me wrong, i wasn't inferring him to be the next Barnes. It was just the cut in and early shot reminded me of what we missed post-January! He looks an amalgamation of a Barnes and Morrison type but only time will tell his quality.

I’m genuinely trying to remember the last time we bought someone into the club under the age of 25 from a foreign league. This looks like it’s a Slav signing if so you have to say the club have moved quickly to secure his services considering he walked through the door 1 week ago. Wait to see what this kid has about him but if we can get Harper to sign & Chalobah through the door then the midfield already has a far more mobile and youthful look about it from what we finished with last season.

This would lend itself to the theory that
If they sign , are young and play well...they must be a “Slav” signing
However
Should they be 5hite they must be a “Jenkins” signing .....gerrimartofarclub 😂😂

Oli Burke from Leipzig, Zhang from Vitesse and if including 25 year olds Hegazi from El Ahly were all only 2 seasons ago.

Deal confirmed according to E & s https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/west-brom-transfers-rumours-news-16511201

Can’t see anything in that article about Filipi Krovinovic signing for us, are you sure?

I couldn't either.

However Matt Wilson states on his twitter page that Krovinovic is expected to fly over some time this week and sign the deal which has apparently been agreed by the two clubs. Season long loan.

Now that appears to be factual and not like the fake news post referred to earlier

Seems to be progressing. Would cost us around £300k for the year plus £100k extra if he doesn't play over half the games, which isn't much money these days.

Not seen anything of him but really but from what I’ve read he sounds promising, I hope the club have negotiated a deal to purchase if the loan goes well

I know it's only You Tube but he looks more of a Teixeira type player.
Technically quite good but lacking the physical presence.

If he is like Teixeira then he will be a good signing .

The article clearly says that "negotiating with Benfica is not as easy at it  may seem". Sounds like it 's them rather than us.

aren’t all three sources (O Jogo, A Bola and Record) Portuguese outlets? Suggests that the may not know about our penchant for post moving, at least not as well as they know benfica’s habits. Maybe they don’t know which side is causing the delay, just that there is one?

Sounds like a few of the media outlets prematurely jumped the gun reporting the deal as done
