West Brom eyeing long term Miller deal

West Brom are believed to have agreed a £2million fee with Manchester City to sign on-loan striker Ishmael Miller on a permanent basis. -teamtalk.com

Miller's hot start to the season is definitely making the loan deal look a savvy move indeed.

Upon Eriksson's arrival, Miller's less than stellar pre-season play and lack of appearances suggested he would be one of the casualties, however in a surprising move he was given a new three year deal and farmed out to West Brom for this season.

I've yet to be convinced that Miller does have a long term future at the club, and it maybe that this season is somewhat of a make or break for him, but what is smart about the loan move is that it puts him in the shop window for an extended period of time and should he play well, score a few goals and grab some headlines (all of which he has done so far at this early stage), what he will do is ensure a host of clubs willing to take him on a permanent move at the end of the season - and in turn inflating the transfer fee from what it would have been last season.

Alternatively of course, Miller may well do enough during his time at West Brom to convince Eriksson he does have a future with us and that is combination of size and pace is something he covets up front going forward from next season.

All in all, a win-win situation for both the club and Miller himself.


If he does well, increases value and increases interested clubs plus contract gives more cash to us on transfer fee.

Was heading nowhere at City so win-win when sent him out as could come back after strong season
