West Bromwich Albion have joined the chase to land Nedum Onuoha, skysports.com understands.
Now three clubs are currently battling to land the 24-year-old, who has been told by Manchester City he can leave this summer.
Skysports.com understands Blackburn and Queens Park Rangers are the other two clubs currently looking to land Onuoha, who spent last season on loan at Sunderland.
Everton and Bolton have also been linked this summer, but are yet to make offers and at this stage are not in the running.
West Brom's bid is understood to be an initial loan, while QPR and Blackburn have made offers on a permanent basis.
Onuoha had been hoping to battle for a first-team place, but he is way down the pecking order and has now seemingly accepted that his future lies away from the Etihad Stadium.
