Transfer news: Tongo Doumbia would rather move to West Brom

Arsenal, Everton and Aston Villa target Tongo Doumbia looks set to snub the trio in order to sign for West Brom.

The Rennes midfielder believes he will be given more opportunities at The Hawthorns.

“I felt more desire there,” Doumbia said. “Obviously, it is less glamorous than Arsenal but I’ll be able to continue my progress. I will have more chances to play.

“This (Premier League) is a championship that thrills everybody. I hope this is the beginning of a great adventure.”
