West Brom are keen to inflict more transfer pain on West Ham fans by beating their club to the signing of Brighton left-back Bernardo, Football Insider can reveal.

The Hammers faithful have been left fuming and upset by the sale of Grady Diangana last Friday to the Baggies for £12m rising to a potential £18m.

There could be more misery for West Ham if they lose out on Brazilian Bernardo, 25, amid strong interest from rival clubs.
