Birmingham Live recently published an article which shares the alleged news that the Baggies are “interested” in signing Wigan Athletic left-back Antonee Robinson.
This article cites The Sun on Sunday as the original source of this alleged news and Birmingham Live quotes Sun on Sunday reporter Alan Nixon as having claimed that the Baggies are “heading the queue” for the 22-year-old American, with West Ham United also allegedly showing interest in securing the player’s services.
As explained in this report from Birmingham Live, Robinson had been “expected to leave Wigan” to join Serie A side AC Milan back in January. As per the BBC, Milan and Wigan had agreed on “an initial fee of £6m” for the player to move to the Italian club before the deal fell through “following a medical examination” with Milan.
Birmingham Live’s recent report confirms that Robinson has since “had tests and treatment” for the medical issue that came to light during Milan’s examination and the 22-year-old is now back in training.
