Relegated West Brom have reportedly joined Leeds United in the race to sign Derby County star Matej Vydra.

The Baggies want the Rams’ top scorer as they plot a return to the Premier League at the first attempt.

Vydra had a loan spell with West Brom while they were in the top flight in 2013-14.

Now Albion are keen to bring the Czech Republic international back to the Hawthorns, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post.

The Baggies are rated as one of the pre-season favourites to secure promotion and are likely to be able to offer a bigger financial package for the player.
