But according to the Express and Star's Matt Wilson, Johnstone will move to West Brom - who need a replacement for Ben Foster - rather than Villa, who are unable to complete a permanent deal due to an ensuing financial crisis.

Manchester United have signed 35-year-old goalkeeper Lee Grant from Stoke City.

Richardson actually spent time on loan at the Hawthorns during his time with Manchester United when he helped to keep the Baggies in the Premier League with a loan spell that saw him score three goals in 12 matches for the club.

Reo-Coker is the third free agent to link up with the Championship club for training, with former Middlesbrough defender Martin Cranie and ex-Baggies hero Kieran Richardson, who played a major role in their Great Escape to avoid relegation from the Premier League in 2005.

The 25-year-old spent last season on loan at Aston Villa, helping the midlanders to the Championship play-off final, and returns to the second tier to join their local rivals.

West Ham have had a £12m bid for Dawson rejected but they will be tempted by another move for the player following the news of his transfer request.

"I'm happy to be here".

The club also announced the sale of goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to West Brom. "I've spoken to a lot of people about the club and heard nothing but good things".

"Sam is young and determined to be the best keeper he can possibly be - he's hungry to do that with us at Albion", Moore said.
