Stefan Johansen says he is not thinking about a possible permanent move to West Brom at this moment in time. Norway international Johansen joined the Baggies on loan from Fulham until the end of the season on deadline-day and has been a regular first-team fixture, making four Championship appearances.
The 28-year-old looks surplus to requirements at Craven Cottage, having been told by Claudio Ranieri in January he wasn’t in his plans, and there are reports claiming West Brom will seek a permanent deal this summer.

However, when asked about his future, Johansen replied that his current focus is on helping Darren Moore’s men achieve promotion to the Premier League. “At the moment I’m on loan and then we will see what the future brings,” he said. “I felt like West Brom really wanted me. I think West Brom should be in the Premier League so I was very keen to come and help with that. “That was the main reason. I think the style of play the manager wants to play will suit me as a player as well. It’s all happened quite quickly on transfer deadline day. “I felt like the manager (Darren Moore) wanted me here and I was made welcome by the club from day one.”
