The Mirror says West Brom boss Steve Clarke has a £1.7 million deal set up for loan star Amalfitano with Marseille.
Albion agreed the fee in advance of taking the Frenchman for the season and now the Baggies want to seal a permanent move.
Classy Amalfitano, scorer of a brilliant goal against Manchester United , is willing to sign on full-time if terms can be agreed with him.
Amalfitano is on £40,000-a-week and looking for a long-term contract at the Hawthorns - but Clarke is encouraging the deal.
