Albion on winger hunt

Last Updated: Mon, 30 Jun 2014 13:48

West Brom are said to be one of several clubs who have taken an interest in free agent Floyd Ayite after his good season with Reims.

The 25-year-old scored five times and chalked up five assists with the French side last term before announcing that he would not be extending his deal with the club beyond this summer.

Ayite is now said to be on a number of teams' wishlists, including Nice, St Etienne and Bastia in his native France, while Crystal Palace, Hull City and West Brom are reported to be keen on bringing him to England.

Hull are believed to be leading the race for Ayite's signature but his agent Willie McKay says he has options after setting his heart on a move to the Premier League.

McKay, who is working with Mondial Promotions on Ayite's future, told Sky Sports: "A number of clubs are interested in Floyd as he enjoyed a fine season with Reims last year and is also a free agent.

"Several sides in France want to sign him and I have spoken to a number of clubs in the Premier League about Floyd.

"Floyd has indicated he would like to play in England and I feel he would make a great signing on a free transfer."
