Masi has confirmed it now. Out of contract in summer and at 33 you would hope it's a small fee.

Cardiff fans glum at the prospect of losing him which is a positive (seen a few fans saying he has been best performer this season). Just the age thing really for me - quite old for a full back and no guarantee his form in a familiar set up at Cardiff would transfer to us.

Don't really know anything about this guy other than what the first two posters have said. You do need to look to players that can get us up and a bit of Championship nous and experience at the back is massively needed. Bit boring but maybe that's what we need at the back?!

Fans are funny. Saw online people saying it’s this seasons Tyron Mears. Mears was playing 2nd division football in the states and was 36. Peltier is 33 and played 25 champ games this year and 20 games in the prem last year....

Thing is, we don’t need a world beater in every position. In some cases we just need to make sure we have competent cover. The club have been very clear that it is targeting signings to get us up. Fair play.

Feeling more positive about this move. Cardiff fans say he doesn't really get forward, but instead is just very solid at the back. Could be just what we need.

https://www.wba.co.uk/news/2020/january/albion-bring-in-utility-defender-peltier/

Albion have completed the deadline-day signing of Lee Peltier on a short-term contract until the end of the season.

The 33-year-old utility defender arrived from Cardiff City on a free transfer in the final hours of transfer deadline day.

Lee will bolster Slaven Bilić’s defensive numbers with his capability to play across all positions in the back-line.


Sporting and Technical Director Luke Dowling said: “Lee will provide tough, proven experience and ‘know-how’ for us across a variety of roles in defence.

“He was a key figure in Neil Warnock’s team and knows what it takes to get promoted from this division.

“We felt we needed some cover and once we knew Lee would be available it made good sense to bring him in.”

Lee has made more than 150 appearances for Cardiff since 2015, including 20 in their Premier League campaign last season and 30 in their promotion-winning Championship campaign.

Cardiff fans really rate him and he is more of a defensive full back (possibly better in that regard than the 4 we have). He is an option and if he helps solidify the defence in the next 4 months then he is a good aquisition.

What are you expecting?

He’s a short term deal until the end of the season.

He adds some much needed solidity to a back line which has been bullied in recent weeks

Good solid signing. Remember the days when we had no proper fullbacks at all and now there are people meaning about acquiring some backup in a role that is very important to how the team plays. Short memories.

Also give us the ability to move furlong to CB where he has previously played.

Wouldn’t be so sure about that.  Furlong and Ferguson have generally had favourable reports (about performances at least) yet we have been a shambles at the back.

So either both have been incredibly poorly judged, or LP will still be in the same poor unit.

It signals to me that we think he has the ability to help shore up our defence in the Championship and hopefully enough to help us get promoted. However, should we be successful we don't believe he is right for us next season. I think that's very shrewd.

I find it hard to believe that Lee Peltier, at age 33 has joined us after making 25 appearance for Cardiff City this season, to not even been on the bench.

And I find it harder to believe that we have invested money in a player that we don’t intend to utilise on match days.

So, it begs the question, what’s the plan for him?

To add to the squad deptrh i imagine. It looked like Ferguson was off but that changed and O'Shea also emeged as a dependable RB but it's not hurting to have him here.

He will be in the match day squads soon I think. Might not make the starting 11 but good as back up.

He's a solid professional well versed in this division. To be honest, given that Nathan Ferguson was pretty much on the way out and looks as though he probably won't play for us again, I'm surprised Peltier's signing is up for apparent debate. The plan is to play a proven professional with promotion on his CV to help get us over the line if/when required.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.

I would very much like to see him in the match day squad because of all his experience and player attributes.

Others will argue differently, but I think he was probably one of the most astute signings in January.

We signed him just to provide cover as it seems that Ferguson won't play for us again.
Also his experience could benefit our young players(e.g O'Shea).

Cardiff manager Neil Harris was asked at his club's press conference this morning about the departure of Lee Peltier:

Harris: Firstly, great servant to the club, great to work with on the training pitch, a lot of time for Lee.
You just get to a stage with senior players when you put a lot of things into the mix. But, ultimately, we got to a situation on deadline day where Lee got an opportunity to move to West Brom, an hour away from his family home with his children, and to go to a team that’s top of the league and will likely go to play in the Premier League.
And Lee had an opportunity, contractually, to go and play in the Premier League next year.
As much as if we wanted to keep him and if he was thinking about playing at Cardiff, an hour from home, chance of Premier League football? That’s a big draw.
But Lee goes with our regards and best wishes for the future.
Was there a dispute over a contract?
At the end of the day, players with four months left ultimately decide what they want to do.
There’s a lot of thought process that goes in here, trying to have a younger group with energy and balancing that off with good lads.
Lee falls into so many categories but we got to a stage where decisions were being made on contracts, but Lee got an opportunity to go to West Brom and it was a great opportunity for him.

Peltier signed up for the season.

Thought he would be. If we thought we needed him as cover in January, given we are a very similar squad now then it stands to reason you'd still think you need some cover. Incumbent is likely cheap, so if hes happy and settled in the group why wouldn't they keep him on board.

Low cost, 3rd choice RB cover with a bit of Pl experience. Could be worse.

I watched the PSG match last night against Lens. They lost one nil and had about 8 first teamers out with the ‘virus’, a large squad is going to be required so a signing like peltier could end up being a shrewd move as he can cover to a certain level several positions.

I would imagine he has been signed as cover for the full back positions.

As it stands Gibbs will be playing this season for us, if he gets injured  then we only have Townsend at left back, i imagine O'Shea or Furlong will then move over to left back for certain games and Peltier then covers the right back slot behind O'Shea or Furlong (whichever isnt over at left back)

It does seem we are being creative and maybe funds that were going to be used for a left back will now go for other positions, if Gibbs does get sold then we use those funds for another left back.

I can see the sense in signing Peltier based on our present financial circumstances and position priorities, however i doubt he will play that often but probably low (ish) wages and can do a job.

Same reason i would imagine for the Ivanovic signing, free transfer, he is probably better than Bartley and Hegazi and on lower wages too (certainly lower than Hegazi) and we may get some sort of fee for them which again then gets used on other areas of the pitch.

Its not perfect but its where we are at, its been reported we are going to be creative and looks that way, if we add another couple of midfielders (examples - Krov and / or Gallagher or 1 x other) and an attacker (Grant) then hopefully be an exciting season.

It looks like with the left back position and also another striker (as well as Grant) will depend on us shifting big earners such as Gibbs, Austin / HRK first which is fair enough.

TBF mate we ain't going to get much for Gibbs, 31 in 2 weeks with less than 1 year left. Who they have lined up to replace him if that happens god knows with a million or so quid to spend.

Just need to pray Gibbs stays fit most the season.

I think its more the wages with Gibbs the reason they want to shift him on, thats probably why there is no rush to sign him, sure i read he is our highest paid player.

Another pathetic signing no matter how you dress it up. Does the player himself have any real desire to play or just happy to take the wage?

Odd question to pose on here.   It's not like he's had a glorious career and this is a step down or one last pay day. This is his last opportunity to play at the top level and he's managed to get earn himself a PL contract, so you would expect that he has got himself into pretty good shape over lock down and into pre-season.   It's likely that he will end up the same as Mears (who didn't really let the team down when he was called on) but he may also end up playing more than we think and taking on the holding full back role allowing Gibbs to get forward.  A lot depends on the role that Billic see's for O'Shea and how well he adapts to the top division.

The reality is we arent going to get premier league players in their prime as a newly promoted club, we have a lot of younger players who have been good at a lower level who now have the chance to step up and prove over the next few years they can be established premier league players (johnstone, furlong, o’Shea, kipre, ajayi, pereira, diangana, edwards, possibly gallagher, grant and krov if we get them)

The reality is some of those just wont be good enough, some will, by getting some premier league know how in to help then it gives them a better chance, ideally they step up and in couple of seasons they have become our established premier league players who are coming into their prime, we let the older heads go, introduce younger players who then play with our then established players such as the crop mentioned above.

3rd choice rb, lb and 5th choice cb, the club clearly don't think we have a youngster they'd trust to fill that role so Peltier being about the place for that is fine. Likely to never play a part in PL, doesn't particularly bother me.

Unless he's turned into Roberto Carlos over the pre season then I can't see him playing. He couldn't get near our bench last season. He's 33 and only played 1 season in the Prem. My point was money aside why would anyone be happy to play a handful of games at most as opposed to regular starts elsewhere.

I'm not sure it's that they don't trust the youngsters more that Peltier has played in the Pl 22 times for a team that was at the bottom end, so has more experience of where we will spend a lot if not all of the coming season.

What is going on? Peltier comes in the category Mears. I trust we're not talking big bucks
for extending his contract, but we're not rolling in money. Every little bit helps, to coin a phrase.

Bit harsh to say no ambition from the player. At this stage for a player like Peltier his ambition will be securing his financial future, which he’s possibly done.

Last year O'Shea was often picked ahead of Furlong as the defensive FB, but its a big ask of the young man to make that step up to the PL and take it all in his stride.   If O'Shea loses form or struggles, and Billic doesn't want to an attacking fullback like Furlong then Peltier would step in.  All conjecture i know, but i would hope this was part of the discussion in negotiating the contract   

You might be right of course. We've taken an easy option signing him as an insurance policy hoping we don't have to claim and he's took another year of money for playing in the under 23's!

I think this is a fair summary, apart from the player bit.

He obviously still thinks he can get game time in the Premier League.

We could have gone abroad and got a better player for the same outlay. This is just a waste of time for all concerned.

I wonder if we see O'Shea as a CB long term? Early days still but I think he has a real bright future and will make the step up.

what is the outlay, I haven't seen it mentioned anywhere? I know there's obviously no fee but I don't know what his wages are? 

Not sure we could have got a better player from abroad on what it's costing us in wages.

I'm sure if between now and the end of the window we sell Gibbs then we will use the money that gives us to look for a better option at left back.

Not sure why we're bothering

We have four full-backs and with the addition of Ivanovic, it will be 5 centre backs.

Seems a bit of an over load..

I am assuming this is because we cant offload Gibbs who is likely to get injured at any time and Townsend is also currently sidelined with an ankle injury. Peltier signed as extra cover as GIbbs almost certainly not moving on this window as we've received no interest in him.

Whilst its underwhelming it sort of makes some sense and its inexpensive.

Why do we release players to avoid a month or two of paying them, then resign them?

Cannot believe how shortsighted we are. Gibbs will be injured and Townsend is not good enough so we should have moved one of them on get a proper LB rather than this.

Given what even basic wages are in the Premier League, I doubt it would have been too difficult to scout somebody from abroad to come in and do a job for us. Certainly somebody who can contribute more than Peltier anyway.

We cant that's the problem. It was made public we wanted to move Gibbs on but no-one has come in for him. Unless Gibbs was willing to go to Japan or somewhere what can you do?

Townsend is injured, you wont shift an injured player like Townsend, not that we want to anyway because he is younger and generally his fitness record is good.

We have other priorities now rather than left back so Peltier is ideal just in case. I doubt he'll even make the bench at any stage.
