Baggie Baird?

Baggie Baird?

Former Clarets defender Chris Baird is undergoing a medical at West Brom, according to Sky Sports sources. Baird made seven appearances during Burnley`s promotion to the Premier League last season after arriving on a six-month deal in January this year following the end of his short-term contract at Reading.

The 32-year-old Northern Ireland international is now available on a Bosman free transfer following completion of the short-term contract at Turf Moor. It had been reported that Sean Dyche would have been willing to offer Baird a new deal but he appears instead to have opted for West Brom.

Baird began his career at Southampton and made 68 appearances for the Saints between 2001 and 2007 before moving to Fulham. He enjoyed six successful years at Craven Cottage before moving to Reading in Summer 2013 after being released by the club last year.

New head coach at West Brom, Alan Irvine and new head of recruitment Mervyn Day, who joined the club last week, are looking to strenghten the squad and it looks like Baird could soon be joining them.

Interesting that Stephen Reid is linked to a move in the other direction. e's a big defender who knows the ropes. Bit injury prone though.

Reid has now signed. SD warned earlier that Baird's family was settled in the south, and that was an issue. I guess he opted for the shorter commute. Reid, has of course (cough) lived up north before! Anyway, many thanks to Chris for getting us over the line last season, and welcome Steven.
