Alan Irvine bemoans full-back inflation

Our experts believe Alan Irvine and West Brom will not survive the Premier League this season.
Alan Irvine has been frustrated in the transfer market this summer.

West Bromwich Albion head coach Alan Irvine believes Luke Shaw's move to Manchester United has led to an inflation in asking prices for full-backs.

- LIVE: Transfer Talk

Shaw, 19, joined United from Southampton last month for 27 million pounds, penning a four-year contract with the Red Devils.

And Irvine feels such a deal has made it harder for clubs to sign players, having already had to pull out of a move for Aaron Cresswell due to Ipswich's valuation of the left-back, who then went on to join West Ham for seven million pounds.

The Baggies have also witnessed Aston Villa go back on a deal that would have seen right-back Alan Hutton move to The Hawthorns, and so have now turned their attention to Liverpool's Andre Wisdom and Jason Davidson of Heracles.

"When you look for full-backs now, the prices have changed as a result as what happened with Luke Shaw," Irvine is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror.

"Players are worth a lot more than before and that makes it more difficult for us. We need several more new faces in."
