Everton defender Brendan Galloway is set to sign for West Brom on loan, according to a reliable journalist.
The Telegraph’s transfer expert and Midlands report John Percy has claimed on his personal Twitter account that terms have been agreed for Galloway to make a temporary switch to the Hawthorns.

This comes after the Chronicle’s chief sports writer Lee Ryder reported on Monday morning that Galloway’s expected move to Newcastle had collapsed.
It has been widely reported the Everton left-back was headed to the north-east giants for the season but West Brom now appear to have won the race.
Galloway made 21 senior appearances for the Toffees as he filled in impressively in the left-back role while Leighton Baines and Bryan Oviedo recovered from injuries.
Now, with both players back and vying for first team football under the new boss Ronald Koeman, the decision was taken to send him out on loan for more first-team experience.
Galloway came through the ranks at MK Dons where he made his senior debut aged 15 in the FA Cup first round becoming the club’s youngest-ever player.
He moved to Everton in 2014 and signed a new contract extension last December that will see him stay at Everton until June 2020.
In more Everton transfer news, the Toffees have been given some hope in the pursuit of this La Liga 27-year-old.
