West Brom To Make £3million January SPL Raid?

West Bromwich Albion are understood to weighing up a £3million bid for midfielder Kevin Thomson at SPL giants Glasgow Rangers, according to reports.

24-year-old Thomson has been at the ‘Old Firm’ side since joining from Hibernian in January 2007, with the Scottish International a target for Baggies boss Tony Mowbray this summer.

Thomson opted to remain at Gers and has been a regular starter for manager Walter Smith in the SPL this season, but Mowbray is understood to still want to bring Thomson to the Hawthorns, with the West Brom chief having worked with the midfielder when he was in charge of Hibs.

The Glasgow side will be reluctant to let Thomson leave for the Premier League, but with a wealth of midfielder’s at the Ibrox Stadium, Smith could be tempted to cash in on the player, who cost £2million from Hibernian only 18 months ago.

Mowbray has always maintained that the Midlands side will strengthen the squad at the Hawthorns in January in order to retain their Premiership status, but has not revealed the names of potential targets for the Baggies.

Mowbray said: “We know the areas where we want to strengthen and that's something we will address in the next window.”
