Derek Boateng is attracting interest from West Bromwich Albion according to Express and Star.

The 28-year old Ghana international, currently with Spanish club Getafe, is believed to be a target for Baggies boss Roy Hodgson who is keen to provide defensive midfield cover for Youssuf Mulumbu and Paul Scharner.

Boateng, who is also being tracked by Valencia, Villarreal and Paris Saint-Germain, joined Getafe in 2009 from German club FC Cologne.

He has also previously played for Kalamata, Panathinaikos, OFI Crete, AIK and Beitur Jerusalem.
