WEST Brom are keen to seal a deal which will keep former Ireland star Wes Hoolahan at the club after his deal runs out next week.

Hoolahan agreed a short-term contract with the Baggies earlier this season, following his exit from Norwich City, but that deal is due to expire in a matter of days, so boss Darren Moore wants to conclude talks with the Dubliner about an extension.

“I’m due to speak to his adviser, he’s coming to the end of his contract,” Moore said.

“I’ll look at addressing that this week, I’ve just got my head down in the Christmas period because it’s been a busy time. This week presents an opportunity to speak to Wes and his adviser and look at the best way going forward. I’ll be looking at Wes’s contract situation.”

Meanwhile, Leeds United’s Irish defender Paudie O’Connor will spend the rest of the season with Bradford City after a loan deal was concluded.

And Leicester City are poised to make a contract offer to Ali Reghba after the Bohemians striker impressed while in action for the Foxes’ reserve side.
