James McClean undergoes medical ahead of £5 million move

James McClean has arrived at Stoke City to undergo a medical ahead of a £5m transfer from West Brom

McClean is set to finalise a move to the Championship club after three-years with West Brom.

The Republic of Ireland winger has been linked with a move to Stoke for the past few weeks. Gary Rowett, the new Stoke manager, is seemingly a fan of McClean and attempted to sign him for Derby County back in January.

The former Sunderland winger reportedly refused to attend a training camp with West Brom earlier this month as progress on his move to Stoke stalled.


The Baggies, who suffered relegation from the Premier League last season alongside Stoke, said McClean would "face internal disciplinary proceedings." But it doesn't look like he'll be a West Brom player for much longer.

McClean joined West Brom from Wigan Athletic in 2015 and has made 111 appearances for the club, scoring five goals.

Stoke are also reportedly close to signing James Chester from Aston Villa, and Tom Ince from Huddersfield Town as they plot a return to the Premier League.
