Its understood that negotiations have progressed well and its expected that Hoolahan will pen a deal with the Championship side over the weekend.

Moore played down a decision over the duo in his most recent press conference, claiming that the Baggies had not yet made up their mind over any deals, however, that no longer appears to be the case.

Birmingham are looking for their first Championship win of the season and boss Garry Monk, a former team-mate of Baggies boss Darren Moore at Torquay, could hand starts to defender Wes Harding and midfielder Viv Solomon-Otabor.

West Brom could add a wealth of experience and talent to their squad with the signing of Hoolahan and Martin, but it remains to be seen if the veterans’ bodies can hold up against the physical demands of Championship football.
