Baggies still keen on Hargreaves gamble

WEST Brom could meet with Owen Hargreaves as early as this week as they continue their interest in the former England midfielder.

Albion have already been in contact with Hargreaves, who has been released Manchester United after playing only 27 games in the past four years due to chronic knee problems.

And Baggies' sporting and technical director Dan Ashworth has revealed he is hoping to set up a meeting with the 30-year-old former England star.

"He's based over in the United States at the moment so we might try to get to meet him in the next week or so and see if he would consider coming to us.

"If Owen is fit to play Premier League football, it is a no-brainer. He is a fantastic player."
