Baggies target midfield area

14 July 2008 10:43
West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Mowbray has made strengthening the midfield his main transfer priority ahead of the new Premier League season. The Baggies lost Hungary playmaker Zoltan Gera to Fulham on a free transfer last month and the Baggies boss is keen to bolster his options in the middle of the park. Jonathan Greening, Robert Koren, James Morrison, Chris Brunt, Kim Do-Heon and Filipe Teixeira are the only midfielders currently on the books at The Hawthorns. "It doesn't have to be the same type of player as Zoltan playing out wide," he told the club's official website. "That player might be at the football club already. "I'd just like to give myself options in that area and I think we do need to strengthen the midfield area. "The numbers in that area are still a little bit light for my liking." Meanwhile, the Baggies have travelled to a training camp in Holland ahead of friendlies against German Bundesliga duo Borussia Moenchengladbach and FC Koln this week. "Like ourselves, they've both been promoted to their respective top-flight," added Mowbray. "They're huge clubs and will prove two very good tests."
