Tottenham target determined to quit West Brom after failed January move

Nathan Ferguson wants to leave West Brom this summer just weeks after a knee injury stopped him securing a Premier League move, according to reports.

The full-back looked set to join Crystal Palace at the end of January until the transfer was cancelled on deadline day due to concerns over the injury.

According to Football Insider, the 19-year-old’s representatives have made it clear that the 19-year-old is not interested in signing a new deal as he is “hell bent” on leaving the Hawthorns.

Ferguson‘s current deal ends in the summer, when he can leave as a free agent.

He would be able to move abroad for around £300,000 and there is reported interest from teams in Spain and Germany.

There are a number of Premier League clubs including Tottenham also thought to be looking at the defender.

Any deal for the teenager,who has helped West Brom to the top of the Championship table, would likely cost a compensation fee of around £4 million.

 

That would mean a significant financial blow for the Baggies, who had agreed the transfer of Ferguson to Palace for £8 million rising to a potential £11 million in add-on’s.

He went through a medical at Palace that showed up knee problems which in turn led to the Londoners trying to renegotiate the fee with the Baggies, but a deal could not be agreed.

The defender has returned to the Championship leaders with his future in the balance, failing to make the squad for their last three matches.

It comes after West Brom risked Ferguson by playing him for 94 minutes  in their 2-1 defeat to Cardiff City late last month while he was suffering with his injury problems.
