Baggies interested in signing free agent Thompson

July 16, 2006

West Brom boss Bryan Robson has revealed his interest in signing midfielder David Thompson.

Thompson, 28, was released by Wigan at the end of last season and would be available on a free transfer.

'I've spoken to David Thompson and his agent,' said Robson on the club's official website.

'We've said we've got an interest and the chairman is going to speak to them. We'll see how it goes but there's a long way to go with that.

'I've only had a half-hour chat with both of them but I think he's got other offers on the table. We'll just have to wait and see how it goes.'
