As with every team that gets promoted to the Premier League, club’s will tend to restructure their squad in order to adapt to the change in pace and quality of the top division, with there being a particularly level of disparity between the Championship and the top flight.
At present the Baggies are leading the race fro promotion to the top flight with Slaven Bilic having masterminded a strong approach to games which allows the Hawthorns outfit to get the most out of their offensive players in the final third whilst also remaining solid in defensive situations.
Loan signings of the likes of Matheus Pereira, Filip Krovinovic and Grady Diangana have gone a long way towards giving the Midlands based club that extra edge in games against their rivals as they seek to return to the Premier League at the second time of asking.
QUIZ: Can you get 100% on this ex-West Brom player nationality quiz? See if you can get full marks down below!
Here, we take a look at TWO players that West Brom should ideally look to sell if they get promoted this season….
The Baggies veteran has been an ever present figure for the club since arriving back in the summer of 2007 from Sheffield Wednesday making a total of 418 appearances for Albion.
Brunt is now seemingly deemed as an expendable member of the current squad after seeing a January move to Stoke City fall through during the last knockings of the transfer window.
Given that he has now reached the age of 35 and the fact that Bilic has shown a favouritism for signing younger players, his days at the Hawthorns seem numbered at present.
Dispensing of the veteran will also help to free up some much needed wages which should in turn allow Bilic to strengthen his squad in key areas.
The former Nottingham Forest man is currently out on loan in Spain with La Liga outfit Alaves and seemingly faces an uncertain future at the Hawthorns, with the 22-year-old being set to return to England in the summer.
With only one goal and one assist to his name this term, it seems increasingly likely that Bilic will look to sell the player on for a profit in order to balance the books and put some depth into his transfer kitty.
The Baggies invested heavily in bringing Burke to the club and it is fair to say that the transfer has not gone to plan, with the player having spent time out on loan at Celtic and Alaves since moving to the club back in 2017.
Burke is almost certain to be one of the main features of what will be an end of season cull as Bilic seeks to trim his squad ahead of what will be a testing season in either the Premier League or the Championship.
