With promotion back to the Premier League sealed, there now comes the tough task of improving the squad. Inevitably, this means a number of players will have to make way. Here are some of the players who could be on their way out this transfer window.


#1 Oliver Burke

Undoubtedly one of Albion’s worst transfers in recent years, the most expensive Scotsman has not lived up to his price-tag.

For reasons that remain to be seen Burke has not found his feet at the club and has been the subject of a loan spell at Alaves this season. Despite struggling for appearances at West Brom he has managed 31 in La Liga so far.

However, Albion already have strong competition in the wide areas and with rumours surrounding Diangana and Robinson, Burke might find himself playing his football elsewhere.

In what looks to be a busy window for the Baggies a much needed cash injection will benefit everyone, even if it falls short of his original price.


#2 Matt Phillips

Phillips, has been a good servant to the club since his arrival in 2016 from QPR. However, towards the back end of the season he has been unable to hold down his position on the wing that he had previously been accustomed to.

He does still have two years left on his contract and with experience in Premier League football, is arguably a good squad player.

His future will probably depend on what kind of business Albion get done this window. Should they sign more attacking wide options, if an offer came in, it might not be a surprise to see him go.


#3 Kenneth Zohore

Only recently signed last summer for the price of £8m, Zohore has managed just 17 appearances in the Championship this season.

He did however score what turned out to be crucial goals towards the start of the campaign. As the season continued he found it increasingly harder to make an impact and was left out on many occasions.

With a striking option a necessity for Albion going into the new season, and as he has often played second fiddle to Kanu and Austin, he is likely to be the striker who will make way.
