Clarke preparing West Brom summer transfer targets

The 49-year-old was spotted at a Championship game on Tuesday and admitted that, despite their successful season, the squad may be subject to a number of changes next year
West Brom boss Steve Clarke watched Leeds defender Sam Byram and Ben Marshall, of Leicester, on Tuesday night as the manager looks ahead to next season.

The Baggies have been in great form so far this term, and sit ninth in the Premier League, but the Scot is determined to push on and improve next season and is already compiling a list of potential signings, with many of his top players currently being looked at by bigger outfits.

Leeds youth academy product Byram scored in the 1-1 draw between the Whites and Foxes and the 19-year-old full-back is reportedly a priority target for the Midlands side, while 21-year-old winger Marshall is also being monitored.

The 49-year-old told reporters: "We will look nearer the summer but there is a possibility there will be three or four changes, four or five changes or maybe even five or six changes.

"You can never tell what's coming in the transfer system.

"Obviously we've had a very good season and maybe some other, bigger clubs will show an interest in the players we've got.

"But our job is to make sure we have a number of targets ready for to come in as and when we need to chase those players."
