West Bromwich Albion have joined fellow Championship side Sunderland in showing a willingness to strike a deal for Leicester City goalkeeper Daniel Iversen, this is according to Alan Nixon.

The 25-year-old is currently third in the pecking order at the King Power Stadium behind Kasper Schmeichel and Danny Ward, potentially limiting the amount of first-team minutes he will win in the East Midlands during the 2022/23 campaign.

Leicester have already let Eldin Jakupovic leave this summer after his contract had expired and therefore, it has meant Iversen has now become Brendan Rodgers’ third-choice keeper.

It was reported in June that both Sunderland and Middlesbrough were keen on Iversen at the beginning of the summer however, Boro seem to have addressed their goalkeeping options with the additions of Zack Steffen and Liam Roberts.

The Black Cats have also recruited a goalkeeper with Alex Bass arriving from Portsmouth in the latter stages of last month. However, the Wearsiders are believe to still hold an interest in Iversen, who will be allowed to leave the King Power Stadium should first-choice Kasper Schmeichel remain at the club.

Sunderland may still face competition for the 25-year-old’s signature, with the latest update stating that West Brom are now keen on Iversen as Steve Bruce weighs up whether to add to his goalkeeping options.

Albion currently have David Button and Alex Palmer at the club and Bruce has gone on record to state he is happy with his goalkeeping options heading into the campaign. So, it is unclear if that has changed as of now.
