West Brom to miss out on summer deal to sign midfielder

West Brom’s hopes of signing Stefan Johansen permanently have been dashed as he signs a new contract with Fulham.

The Baggies would have liked to make the deal permanent this summer, but these hopes have been quashed as he has signed a contract extension with relegated Fulham.

Along with Johansen, Tom Cairney,Denis Odoi, Floyd Ayite and Neeskens Kebano have also signed contract extensions.As reported by the Express and Star, Fulham owner Shahid Khan said:
They have been faithful to Fulham and were instrumental in our promotion, giving us great confidence, ability and continuity as we prepare for the intensity of a 46-match season in the Championship. Johansen was a key player in Fulham’s promotion-winning season, grabbing eight goals and the same number of assists.
With Fulham spending big this past summer, opportunities in the first-team in the Premier League were limited.
This lead to him joining West Brom in January and he has impressed during the run-in.
