National newspaper reports suggest today that the Baggies are ready to make a £4 million move for the Irons winger.
But ClaretandHugh can reveal the West midlands outfit only want the player on a season-long loan.
The £9 million signing from Albion’s deadly Black Country rivals Wolves had an indifferent season at Upton Park last season and manager Alan Irvine was reported as being interested in trying to sign the player.
But tonight a top Hammers insider made it clear to ClaretandHugh that the Baggies are only interested in doing a loan deal
He told us exclusively: “There is no interest from West Brom in taking Matt Jarvis in a permanent deal. They have been trying to loan him all summer.
“Why on earth they think we’ll loan a player that cost us £9.5m and is our first choice left winger I do not know. He’s looked good in pre-season”
