West Brom have bid rejected for Wigan’s Callum McManaman

Head coach Tony Pulis is chasing his first signing for the club but has seen a bid, reported to be £4m, turned down. The Baggies are expected to return with a second offer for the winger, who has scored five goals in 22 games for the Championship strugglers.

Pulis is trying to shake up his squad after replacing Alan Irvine last month and has made the first move to bring McManaman, 23, to the Hawthorns. His interest in Manchester United’s Darren Fletcher remains ongoing with the Baggies optimistic of signing the 30-year-old Scotland international, who is out of contract end of the season.

But Albion are not interested in Elche striker Jonathas, who is on loan from Italian club Pescara.

The Baggies did check out the 25-year-old, who has scored seven goals for the Spanish side, but opted against pursuing their interest.
