Baggies leading Vaughan race

The Wales international is available on a free transfer and the
Baggies have held preliminary talks with the 28-year-old, according
to the Express & Star, with Vaughan keen on a move to The
Hawthorns. He has also spoken to Steve Bruce’s Black Cats and
Scottish champions Rangers, as well as being offered a new deal by
Blackpool after sweeping the board in their end-of-season awards.
But it is believed that Albion gaffer Roy Hodgson, who has already
signed defender Gareth McAuley on a free transfer from Ipswich, is
now at the front of the queue to sign the former Crewe schemer,
with a three-year deal reportedly on the table at The Hawthorns.
Vaughan had previously said: “These last two years at Bloomfield
Road have been great and have probably been the best years of my
career, so hopefully wherever I may be next year – if it’s
Blackpool or not – I can keep my form going. “I don’t know what the
future holds just yet but if I do go somewhere else I will take
away nothing but happy memories.”
