Albion to keep Pereira
Championship runners-up West Bromwich Albion are set to tie up the £8.25million signing of Matheus Pereira this month on his return from holiday. The 24-yearold Brazilian winger triggered a clause to make his move permanent when he passed 30 appearances for the club in June. Signed on loan from Sporting Lisbon in August, Pereira was one of the division’s standout players under Slaven Bilic. West Brom are also poised to start talks with Benfica over another loan deal for Croatian midfielder Filip Krovinovic.
