Irvine keen on Samaras

West Brom boss Alan Irvine has confirmed his interest in former Celtic striker Georgios Samaras.

The Greece international is a free agent after leaving Celtic Park in the summer and is expected to hold talks with the Baggies.

Irvine said at Thursday's press conference: "He's a player we're aware of. We have enquired about him. Nothing is done as far as he's concerned."

Samaras scored 73 goals in 249 games for Celtic after arriving from Manchester City, initially on loan, in 2008. He was part of Greece's World Cup squad this summer as they reached the last 16.
