West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel has discussed January signings with the board.

Mel revealed he has already been presented with a list of potential transfer targets but any new faces will be loan signings or free transfers after sporting and technical director Richard Garlick ruled out transfer fees following the £12m outlay on the final day of the transfer window on Stephane Sessegnon and Victor Anichebe.

The 50-year-old Spaniard said: "I'm sure that West Brom are not going to sign Lionel Messi, but there are players who can come here and do a good job.

"The club have given me a list of players they are currently speaking to, and they're all very good players."
