Deadline Day: Bryan Oviedo nears Sunderland exit as he puts final touches to West Brom loan

Sunderland’s Costa Rican left back Bryan Oviedo - the highest earner currently at the club - looks set to leave on loan for Championship side West Bromwich Albion this evening.

Bryan Oviedo may depart Sunderland before the 11pm deadline with reports suggesting that he is set to join Championship club West Bromwich Albion.

According to Dean Jones of Bleacher Report, the left-back is set for a deadline day switch to the Hawthorns and Matt Wilson of the West Midlands Express and Star says the Sunderland defender is on his way to WBA’s training ground to complete his move.

Oviedo has fallen behind Reece James in the pecking order, has been restricted to substitute appearances of late and with the return from injury of Denver Hume imminent, it looks as if the Costa Rican international may be moved on.

Oviedo only recently gave an interview where he said he would likely stay at the club but due to the player being one of the highest earners at the club, it was always likely that we would accept any reasonable offer that came our way.
