West Bromwich Albion are set to snap up free agent Nigel Reo-Coker.

The Daily Mail says Reo-Coker is being lined up for a surprise move to West Brom.

The 28-year-old is free to join after rejecting a new deal at Ipswich on January 14.

Albion boss Steve Clarke wants midfield reinforcements to cover for injured George Thorne, who suffered knee ligament damage at Everton on Wednesday.
