Romaine Sawyers set for West Brom move

Romaine Sawyers was recently linked with a move to Celtic, however, it seems Brentford have accepted West Brom's £2.9million for the player.

According to Football Scotland publication, Celtic had initially tabled a £1.5million offer for Sawyers but reports revealed that it was rejected - while Stoke City had come forward to inquire about his availability. 

Daily Mail reported that the 27-year-old was set for the move to Scotland but had a change of heart when the opportunity arose to reunite with manager Slaven Bilic. 

In other Celtic news, new recruits Hatem Abd Elhamed has revealed playing as a right-footed fullback is the position he prefers to play.

Football Scotland quoted Abd Elhamed saying: "I used to play a lot as a right-back, for many, many games, and my last coach decided to play me at centre-half which I did.

"If you say to me 'play this position or that position', I will always try my best. My position, however, is right-back.

"I played only four or five games at right-back over the past few months but I played right-back a lot before that.

"I'm versatile. I can do many things. I'm fast, good with the ball, comfortable in possession and good in defence."
