West Bromwich Albion have made a £10million move for Fenerbache's Josef de Souza.

The 28-year-old is a defensive midfielder who has three caps for his country and can also fill in at right-back.

Known as Souza, he played 38 games for Fenerbache last season and scored six goals.

Albion remain in the hunt for a defender too with Mamadou Sakho of Liverpool an option though they face renewed competition from Crystal Palace.

Albion have cooled interest in Tottenham's Kevin Wimmer who is talking to Stoke City and was also an option for Palace.

Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings was also a target for Tony Pulis but the south coast club are not keen to sell the 24-year-old who can play at left-back and centre-back.
