West Brom seek to wrap up £3m deal for Watford defender

West Brom are set to sign Watford defender Allan Nyom in a £3million transfer as the Baggies look to tie up a number of deals.

The 28-year-old is due for a medical at the Baggies and is likely to become their four signing of the summer with Albion expected to be busy in the final hours of deadline day.

Nyom made 32 Premier League appearances for Watford last season after joining from Granada but is being allowed to leave by boss Walter Mazzarri, who arrived in the summer.

The Cameroon international would provide competition for Craig Dawson at right back and allow Dawson to offer cover in his more natural position of centre-back.

The Baggies are also looking at bringing Leonardo Ulloa in from Leicester while Callum McManaman and Rickie Lambert will be allowed to leave if they can find clubs.

Saido Berahino is set to stay while a club-record £15million deal is still on the table for Malaga midfielder Ignacio Camacho after the Baggies were priced out of a move for Sporting Lisbon man William Carvalho.
