thumbnail Hello,

West Brom ended up in eighth spot last season but will Steve Clarke's side be overtaken by another emerging mid-table club?

POLL

After finishing eighth last season, West Brom face fierce competition for their 'best of the rest' title this term following an influx of summer signings from the Premier League’s mid-table clubs.

TRANSFER TALK
125/1 Swansea are 125/1 with Coral to finish in the top four
Swansea have made nine new signings including striker Wilfried Bony from Vitesse and Jonjo Shelvey from Liverpool.

Another player who has left Anfield is Andy Carroll, who joined West Ham this summer following a loan spell at Upton Park. Sam Allardyce's side have also secured the services of Romania full-back Razvan Rat.

Norwich have splashed out on a new forward line with both Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Gary Hooper arriving, while Fulham have recruited Adel Taarabt from Queens Park Rangers on a season-long loan deal.

Sunderland manager Paulo Di Canio has brought in eight new players, with Italy international Emanuele Giaccherini, Vito Mannone and Jozy Altidore the major arrivals at the Stadium of Light.

Meanwhile, Newcastle are yet to make a significant impact in the transfer market, with Loic Remy the only senior player to join Alan Pardew's side this summer.

Elsewhere, Aston Villa have succeeded in their main summer task of keeping Christian Benteke at the club, while Southampton have bolstered their options with the signings of Dejan Lovren and Victor Wanyama.
