It is suggested that new West Brom manager, Tony Pulis could be willing to listen to offers for 27 year old midfielder, Graham Dorrans with Burnley reportedly interested in his services. The story goes that Pulis wants four new players ideally and is willing to sacrifice the Scotland international to strengthen other areas.

Dorrans has been at West Brom since 2008 and it will be interesting to see if the rumour mill is true whether he would be willing to up-sticks to join a fellow relegation-threatened club.

He would certainly fit the bill with the Clarets hoping to boost their central midfield options, preferably with someone who has experience playing in the top flight.

The Glaswegian is classed as an attacking midfielder and started his professional career at Livingston in 2005 following a short spell as a youth on Rangers books. He however spent the first half of the 2005-06 season on loan at Partick Thistle. Dorrans was approached by West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Mowbray in January 2008 and he agreed to join the Baggies at the end of that season. He duly signed in July 2008 for an initial £100,000 that could go up to £250,000 depending on appearances. Dorrans subsequently agreed a new four year deal in July 201o

Since signing he has made just over 150 appearances for the Baggies scoring 21 goals. Dorrans signed a new three year contract with West Brom in July 2014 after negotiations with new Head Coach Pepe Mel. This was despite having previously been put on the transfer list in January 2013 and playing just 16 appearances in 2013-14.
