West Brom are considering making a second bid for Leicester defender Jeff Schlupp.

The Baggies have not given up hope of signing the Ghana international despite having a £9million bid rejected by the Foxes.

Boss Tony Pulis wants to strengthen his options in wide areas at The Hawthorns and is searching for a recognised left-back. Jonny Evans finished the season in that position after Chris Brunt suffered a serious knee injury. Leicester head into their first ever Champions League campaign with boss Claudio Ranieri reluctant to see his title-winning squad fall apart having already lost midfielder N'Golo Kante to Chelsea.

Finances are not a problem for the Baggies and a move would depend on whether 23-year-old Schlupp, who can also play in midfield, would be happier as a squad player with the champions or playing regular football at The Hawthorns.
