West Bromwich Albion

The three West Brom players who might actually go off the team this summer for a fee

Published

For now, the West Bromwich Albion recruitment squad will be preparing for life in the Championship and the Premier League.

The Baggies have a chance to secure promotion now that it’s in the promotion mix, which would alter their spending capacity.

It could also have an impact on the players they decide to trade for during the summer window.

Further funding will be required to guarantee Albion stays within the EFL’s financial constraints if Shilen Patel wishes to spend a significant sum during his first window in charge and the team stays in the second division.

Nevertheless, regardless of the league they play in, the Baggies may wish to sell a few first-team players, which we have highlighted below.

Karlan Grant

Grant is now on loan at Cardiff City. Given that he has previously been connected to a move outside of the Midlands, his brief departure to the capital of Wales is not surprising.

The striker’s contract doesn’t end until 2026, unlike several other Albion players whose deals expire this summer.

The former Huddersfield Town player signed a six-year contract with Albion upon his arrival in 2020, and unless they find a buyer or loan him out once more, Albion will be responsible for paying his wages.

Midweek refereeing decisions were a hot topic, and this has slowed down debate about VAR.

A sale might be the best option for all involved, particularly for West Brom, who could use the money to bolster their forward line.

Daryl Dike recently had yet another catastrophic injury, so that money would come in really handy.

It would be interesting to see how much they can get out of Grant’s sale, though, considering his scoring record hasn’t been very strong this season. His solid scoring history from earlier in the season might help him get a promotion.

Griffiths had appeared poised to secure a regular starting berth at The Hawthorns after his impressive EFL loan appearances.

Regretfully, the 22-year-old’s career hasn’t exactly gone as planned; as of this writing, he has only made three appearances across all competitions, with none of those coming in the league.

Given that Alex Palmer is superior to him in the standings and that Crystal Palace was rumored to be interested in signing him last month, Albion might determine it’s time to approve the keeper’s departure.

Selling him in the summer could help the Baggies avoid the possibility of losing him for nothing because his contract ends in 2025.

Semi Ajayi

Under Carlos Corberan, Ajayi continues to play a role in the first team.

But he hasn’t started on a regular basis since October, which may have cast doubt on the Nigerian’s future.

The 30-year-old might want to start every game the following season, but if Corberan can’t give him that kind of playing time, it might be better for the player and the team to sell.

The summer may be the last chance the team has to raise money for the center defense before he perhaps departs on a free transfer because his contract expires in 2025.
