‘A huge blow for West Brom’ – Worrying Matt Phillips news emerges



January is shaping up to be a very difficult month for West Brom, with Matt Phillips the latest man to be linked with a move away.

The influential Harvey Barnes could be returning to Leicester, with the Premier League side impressed with how his loan spell has worked out.

And, in more bad news for Darren Moore, the Mirror claim that Burnley and Cardiff are both keen on signing on Phillips.

The 27-year-old wide man has enjoyed a very productive campaign so far, weighing in with five goals and six assists.

Worryingly though for the Baggies, he only has 18 months left on his deal and this might be the last chance they can get a fair price for him in today’s market.

But, how big a loss would he be to Albion?

Our writers take a look…

Alfie Burns

This, combined with losing Harvey Barnes, could leave Darren Moore in a really tough place.

Phillips’ contribution this season has been superb, he brings so much to the side. It’s no surprise to hear there’s interest, but it is a serious worry for the Baggies.

The way this window is shaping up, Albion could be a lot weaker in 2019.

Jacob Potter

This would be a huge blow for West Brom.

Phillips has gone somewhat under the radar for the Baggies this season but he has made a notable contribution.

If they do decide to sell him, then I could see them slipping out of the promotion race this season.

George Harbey

I think people don’t really understand how much of a good player Phillips is.

He’s been in sensational form this season, contributing to a load of goals in a fantastic Albion attack.

It would be a huge blow if he left.
