Greek champions Olympiakos are poised to sign West Brom’s Brown Ideye, completesportsnigeria.com understands.
Ideye has found himself surplus to requirements at the Hawthorns, with the Nigerian not figuring in Tony Pulis’ long-term plans according to a report on HITC.
The summer arrivals of Salomon Rondon from Zenit and Rickie Lambert from Liverpool have meant playing time is hard to come by for Ideye.
Ideye joined West Brom last summer in a £10million deal from Dynamo Kiev, but he struggled to make an impact in the Premier League.
The Nigerian striker scored two goals in his first 17 appearances for West Brom, but ended with seven in all competitions.
Several clubs have been linked with Ideye, but Olympiakos have firmed up their interest with an offer.
The lure of Champions League football has tempted Ideye to make the move to Greece, and the striker could come up against Arsenal in this season’s competition.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
