West Bromwich Albion are close to securing Hull midfielder Jake Livermore.

The club have reportedly paid around 10million for the 27-year-old, who is close to becoming the Baggies first signing of the transfer window.

The Tigers accepted Albion's second offer, with West Brom boss Tony Pulis looking to boost his squad after missing out on Morgan Schneiderlin, who joined Everton from Manchester United earlier this month.

West Brom boss Tony Pulis refused to discuss the Baggies' bid for Morgan Schneiderlin but confirmed they have made offers for several players.

Albion have tabled a club-record bid for Manchester United midfielder Schneiderlin, which Press Association Sport understands to be worth around £18million.

Schneiderlin has played just eight times for United this season having moved from Southampton for £25million in 2015.

Everton have also been linked with the France international but Pulis remained tight-lipped over any West Brom deal.

We have made bids for four or five players, we won't talk about them today. We will talk about them if we get them." he said.

I don't want to go into it specifically, doing deals and business with people you should deal directly with them. Once they are done you can talk about them more openly. That's the way I prefer to conduct my business.

We'll be spending a bit of money left over from the previous window, then moving on from there. They are very keen to keep the club running financially positively. They feel they can if they manage it properly.

– Tony Pulis

Watford forward Roberto Pereyra was sent off six minutes from the end of West Brom's 3-1 win when he reacted angrily to a James McClean challenge.

The incident resulted in both sets of players clashing on the touchline.

An FA statement read: "Both West Bromwich Albion and Watford have been charged for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour.

"It follows an incident in the 84th minute of the game on Saturday December 3 2016.

"Both clubs have until 6pm December 8 2016 to respond to the charge."

Earlier on Monday Manchester City and Chelsea were charged with failing to control their players after the bad-tempered conclusion to Saturday's clash.
