Shorey set for Baggies switch

Shorey joined Villa from Reading in 2008 following the Royals’

relegation to the Championship, but was sent on loan to Nottingham

Forest and Fulham last season. The 29-year-old has won two England

caps. “Nicky has gone over there for a medical,” said the Villa

boss on Friday night. “I would have liked to have filled you in to

let you know if that had progressed at this minute but I do know he

was going for a medical today. “I know some fee had been agreed but

like anything else until it’s all done and dusted these days you

never know. “It seemed that everything was in place at the time.”
