Hal Robson-Kanu: Not one of Albion's 'main targets'

Wales star Hal Robson-Kanu will make a decision on his future on transfer deadline day.

The 27-year-old is without a club after leaving Reading in the summer, but his agent, who claims there is plenty of interest in the player, says the forward will decide where his future lies on August 31.

His agent, Hasan Anil Eken, told the Daily Mail: “Hal wants to wait until the last day of the transfer window. He wants to play for an important team with goals.

“He wants higher standards and a good project. He has numerous offers from different countries. In a week he will make a decision.”

Robson-Kanu is understood to be on the radar of numerous clubs with offers from England, Spain, Italy, France and the United States on the table after he helped Wales to the semi-finals of the European Championship in the summer.

The London-born forward scored the BBC’s Euro 2016 goal of the tournament after his brilliant strike in Wales’ staggering 3-1 quarter-final success against Belgium.

His Cruyff turn, which sent three defenders the wrong way, and cool slotted finish was sublime and his decision to run down his deal at The Madejski looked a wise one, but  so far he is yet to agree a transfer.

“Without doubt, running down my contract at Reading was the best decision of my life.

“Reading wanted me to stay but I felt it was the right time to move and take my future in my own hands. I always believed in myself.

“We’ve had offers, I’ve made no secret of the fact that my desire is to play in the Premier League again and I think I’ve proved what I can do at the highest level,” he said earlier in the summer.

Hull City currently, who are without a permanent manager, and have just 13 fit first-team players and are understood to be among those who have offered Robson-Kanu a contract.

Watford, Middlesbrough, Burnley and Swansea  are others who were linked with the player.

Robson-Kanu has been with Reading since 2007  but he scored just 39 goals in 270 appearances.
