Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher is believed to be on the way to West Brom to enter talks with the club over a deal in a last-minute transfer.

Fletcher was reportedly heading to West Ham but Sam Allardyce confirmed over the weekend that the deal had collapsed.

His wages are believed to be a sticking point for any club, and while West Brom are reportedly also unsure if they can meet his demands they might be able to improve on their initial bid with plans to get rid of Georgios Samaras, Brown Ideye, Silvestre Varela and Sebastina Blanco.

The BBC report that while Fletcher attended training with United he is still open to the idea of moving away from the club in order to guarantee more first-team football.

Louis van Gaal ruled out any incoming players over the weekend but admitted that he understood that Fletcher had decided to leave while the deal with West Ham remained a possibility.

"I like him as a person so we shall miss him," he said. "But he hasn't played so many times and that is always the main goal of a player. We have talked about that and he prefers to play."

But reports are now rife that the 31-year-old is on his way to West Brom to discuss a move with the club and both parties are keen to work out an agreement that means he doesn't have to sacrifice a great deal of his wages.

Fletcher has spent the entire of his career with United, though he spent time away from the club with a serious stomach sickness that kept him out of action for lengthy spells.

He has since been an important part of United's leadership group but the star is searching for more game time as he continues to feature for the Scotland national team.
