West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke isn't panicking over a slow start to the summer market.

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke isn't panicking over a slow start to the summer market.

He is keen to bring fresh bodies into his squad, as West Brom look to build on a productive 2012/13 campaign, but will only make a move when he feels the time is right.

Clarke said in the Birmingham Mail: "We have a list of players but I'd be lying if I said we had players lined up to come in because we haven't.

"It's a long summer and you tend to find that there aren't many signings in June and I think that will be the case again this year.

"Last year the only player we signed in June was Ben Foster and that was a carry on from the end of the previous season, when he'd been here on loan.

"Every other deal was done in July and August and that will be the same again this year."
