West Brom interested in signing Rotherham's Semi Ajayi

Championship club West Bromwich Albion are reportedly interested in signing Nigeria international defender Semi Ajayi, according to several reports. 

The print edition of the Sun says the Baggies are making a 2.5 million pounds for the former Arsenal U23 skipper.

New West Brom manager Slaven Bilic had requested for the signing of the Rotherham United star as he bids to strengthen his defence.

Ajayi is predominantly a central defender and is comfortable playing in defensive midfield, and can also be deployed as a makeshift right-back. 

The 25-year-old is believed to be on the lookout for a new employer following the demotion of Rotherham United to the third tier of English football at the end of last season. 

His impressive performances and goalscoring stats last term, seven goals in 46 games, have increased his value, though he was omitted from Nigeria's roster to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
