West Brom manager Tony Pulis eyes Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher

New Albion boss Tony Pulis is hoping to bring Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher to The Hawthorns.

The Baggies are yet to make a bid for the Scotland international but he is on their January wanted list.

United Academy product Fletcher, who’ll be 31 at the start of February, has had a traumatic time since 2011 when he battled the debilitating illness ulcerative colitis.

He was given an extended break in December 2011 to fight the career-threatening problem. Though he returned to United’s first team he eventually needed surgery at the beginning of 2013 to alleviate the trouble and help him lead a normal life again.

Fletcher has won five Premier League titles, an FA Cup and Champions League during his time at Old Trafford but has started just five games this season.
