West Brom 'close to Vydra loan deal'

West Bromwich Albion have turned their attentions to Matej Vydra after being rebuffed by Saloman Kalou.

Matej Vydra (L) celebrates with Troy Deeney after the duo combined to put Watford 2-0 up
Vydra scored 22 goals while on loan at Watford.

Udinese striker Vydra, 21, was a huge hit on loan at Championship Watford last season, with his 22 goals helping the Hornets reach the play-off final and seeing him named Football League Player of the Year.

And sources close to West Brom have told ESPN a deal to bring him to The Hawthorns on loan for the season could be done in the next couple of days.

West Brom head coach Steve Clarke, who has had Czech international Vydra on his list of targets all summer, said after Saturday's friendly win over Bologna that he was concerned about a lack of strength in depth.

"If you looked at the bench in this game, I had a back four, a couple of young lads and Shane Long," he said. "I don't have many options. The squad is short.

"I'm a little bit anxious, but not ready to panic yet. We have made an inquiry with Manchester City for Scott Sinclair and there are discussions between the clubs.

"If you ask whether Kalou will come, I would say no. If you ask about Sinclair, I would say I don't know because I'm not involved with the agents.

"I don't think anyone has been able to persuade Kalou to come out of France. It doesn't look as if that one will happen.

"It's not just us who couldn't persuade him. A few clubs wanted him. So you switch your time and energy elsewhere."

Albion bid £2.6 million for Kalou and are thought to favour a loan deal for former Swansea winger Sinclair -- but City would prefer to sell him outright.

So far this summer, the Baggies have recruited Nicolas Anelka and Uruguay captain Diego Lugano. They have also re-signed left-back Goran Popov on loan.
