To fans of West Bromwich Albion, he’ll be remembered as an expensive flop who failed to live up to expectations when arriving from Real Mallorca for a fee in the region of £5m. Since his disastrous spell at The Hawthorns, he moved back to his native Spain and gradually regained his confidence, but could Borja Valero be on his way back to England?
