Tony Pulis is keen to add defensive weight to his West Bromwich Albion squad, seeing Everton captain Phil Jagielka a perfect fit, according to The Daily Mail.

The England international is currently unhappy with life at Goodison Park under boss Ronald Koeman, having only started two of the last nine Premier League games.

The 34-year-old had told his manager he wanted to discuss his future at the club previously, which has led to the defender deciding it is time to move on from the club he joined nearly a decade ago.

During his time at the Toffees, Jagielka has made 338 appearances, contributing with 15 goals. His performances for the Merseyside outfit also gained him recognition with the national team, currently having won 40 caps.

West Brom aren’t thought to be the only side interested in the defender, with a host of clubs in the top-flight are also reportedly keen in his services.

Sunderland, Crystal Palace, Swansea, Bournemouth and Southampton have all been recently linked with the England international, however it is unclear on what terms Everton are willing to let their captain leave on.

The Baggies are reliant on seasoned campaigners such as Gareth McAuley, Jonny Evans and Jonas Olsson at the back.
