West Brom on the verge of completing move for Wigan Athletic defender Cedric Kipre

West Bromwich Albion are reportedly closing in on a move for Wigan Athletic centre-back Cedric Kipre according to reports from The Sun.

The Sun claim that Kipre immediately emerged on the radar after Shane Duffy completed a season-long loan move to Celtic from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Wigan who have gone into administration are believed to have agreed on a £1 million deal for his signature after he pushed the club's management for a move away from the club.

Blackburn Rovers according to The Sun have also entered their bid for the Ivorian but he is expected to arrive at West Brom to complete his medical.

Kipre registered two goals in 32 appearances across all competitions for Wigan last season.
