Facey Set For Albion Switch

Last updated : 30 January 2004 By Mark Heys
Bolton Wanderers striker Delroy Facey is set to hold talks with West Bromwich Albion over a permanent switch to the Hawthorns after seeing his opportunities at the Reebok Stadium limited this season.

The 23-year old has made just three appearances for the Trotters this term, two of which came in the ill-fated FA Cup ties with Tranmere Rovers earlier in the month and now it seems the young Yorkshireman will be heading for pastures new with the promotion chasing Baggies who have targeted three signings before the closure of the transfer window.

Facey joined the Wanderers in the summer of 2002 after rejecting a new deal with hometown club Huddersfield Town, however due to a mixture of illness and injury he found himself out of the first team picture and was loaned to both Bradford City and Burnley to get some much needed first team football.
