AFC Bournemouth will reportedly be asked by West Bromwich Albion what fee it would take for the Cherries to sell defender Marc Wilson.

Wilson re-joined AFC Bournemouth in August 2016 for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £1.5million.

The 29 year old however failed to make a Premier League appearance for the Cherries, instead making just 2 EFL and 1 FA Cup appearance, totalling 225 minutes of football.

In January he surprisingly joined up with his former Stoke City manager Tony Pulis at West Bromwich Albion on a half season loan deal.

In February, AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe claimed Wilson had been allowed to move as…

‘…we felt we could not stand in Marc`s way after the reasons he gave, which will remain private’.

Wilson later claimed…

‘…my head was down a little bit. I don`t think I was too suited to the environment down there (at Bournemouth).

Wilson has since made 3 Premier League appearances for West Brom and according to the expressandstar.com, Pulis would like to sign Wilson on a permanent deal in the summer.

The newspaper claimed…

‘Albion will ask Bournemouth to slap a price-tag on Marc Wilson as Tony Pulis looks into the possibility of signing the Cherries loanee on a permanent deal.’

The report added…

‘He still has a year left on his Bournemouth contract, but it`s believed the Cherries will only want to recuperate [sic] around £1m for a player who has failed to impress Howe.’

Decent squad member given his versatility so this was a sensible signing for us, just unfortunate re domestic issues.Join the conversation here.
