Ever since his failed last minute transfer to Hull City, Yann Salibur keeps getting linked to the Premier League, without anything ever happening.

The last one came just before the transfer window, when West Brom, now managed by Alan Pardew, were reported by L’Equipe as being seriously interested in the forward.

The Baggies, currently rock bottom of the league with 20 points, are in dire need of a turnaround, and bringing in a player who can bring goals and assists from the wing would certainly have been useful.

In the end, no transfer materialised, and that’s a shame for the both club and player, who would have been available for around €6-8m, according to the French newspaper back then.

Furthermore, the 27-year-old would probably have been in for a decent pay rise, considering he’s currently on less than £10k/week, if the same newspaper on Tuesday are to be believed.

Guingamp aren’t exactly the richest club in Ligue 1, and with his contract running out in 2019, he’ll most likely be looking to improve his income in some way or another in the summer.

That could very well happen in the shape of a transfer, although if West Brom are in the Championship by then, he might want to look elsewhere.
