McClean fails to show up for pre-season

James McClean has failed to show up for West Brom’s pre-season trip to Scotland.

The Republic of Ireland international has been strongly linked with a move to Stoke City, and is the third Baggies player to fail to show up for pre-season.

“James McClean has failed to report without permission and will now face internal disciplinary proceedings,” the club said on their website.

McClean will likely face a fine for his indiscipline, and it seems unlikely that the winger will be a West Brom player when the Championship season kicks off.

Darren Moore’s side began their pre-season programme with 3-0 victory at Barnet on Saturday
