JAMES McClean is close to joining West Brom for a fee understood to be around £1.5m.

The Republic of Ireland Internaitonal joined Latics two years ago for a fee of £1m from Sunderland and has scored 10 goals for the club.

The offer is West Brom’s third bid for the star, who was Latics’ player of the year last season.

McClean has made 86 appearances for Latics during his time at the DW Stadium.

Latics are also set to go back in with a renewed bid for Chesterfield’s Sam Clucas.

The club had a bid of around £800,000 rejected last month but a successful new bid could see Clucas come in as a direct replacement for McClean.

Former Latic Callum McManaman joined the Baggies in January for £4.75m on a three-year deal.
