Undated, Dec 23 (Reuters) West Bromwich Albion do not have the funds to spend big in the January transfer window but manager Alan Pardew hopes their slide into the Premier League’s bottom three will come as a wake-up call for the players at the club.
West Brom started the season with back-to-back wins but have since gone 16 league games without a win and are second from bottom, two points from safety.
Pardew, who replaced Tony Pulis last month, previously said West Brom were keen to strengthen their attack and were interested in Liverpool’s Danny Ings but now thinks they will take a more conservative approach.
“I think it’s fair to say we haven’t got a big pool of money to suddenly go out and buy ourselves a player for 20 million pounds ($26.
71 million),” he told reporters.
