Pundit: My ex-teammate Clarke-Harris will 'definitely' snub Rangers and sign for West Brom

Jonson Clarke-Harris will turn his nose up at Rangers offers in favour of a move to West Brom this summer. 

That is according to Clarke-Harris’ former teammate Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively after Football Insider revealed the latest update in the transfer saga.

Albion have joined Rangers and Sheffield United in pursuit of the goal machine who has netted 33 times in 2020-21.

The Baggies sent scouts to watch the 26-year-old score twice in his Peterborough United side’s 3-3 draw with Lincoln City on Saturday.

Talent spotters will also watch Clarke-Harris in his final match of the campaign against Doncaster Rovers on Sunday.

Kenny, who briefly played alongside the striker during his time at Rotherham, insists that the Hawthorns represents a more enticing option than Ibrox.

He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “He’d definitely go to West Brom if they could somehow stay up.

“Even if they go down and they come in for him, it’s a tough one to turn down.

“There’s a good chance West Brom will fight for promotion next season again. They always seem to be going up and down like a yo-yo club over the past 15 years.

“They aren’t going to get out of the relegation scrap but even if they do go down, it’s a massive club.

“I’d go to West Brom over Rangers if they both offer. West Brom are going to be playing in a more competitive league.

“Yes, Rangers are going to be playing in the Champions League but there’s a good chance they’ll go out quite early.

“If you go to West Brom, you could be a Premier League player within 12 months.”

Clarke-Harris’ Peterborough side will play in the Championship next season.

They are mathematically guaranteed to finish 2nd in League One.
