Now that the dust has settled on West Brom’s 2018/19 campaign, it is probably safe to say that it will go down as a failure.
Having been relegated from the Premier League, Darren Moore was tasked with leading the Baggies straight back to the top-flight but, having been sacked in February, he failed.
Jimmy Shan took over but could not achieve the feet, losing to Aston Villa in the play-offs, and with a permanent manager yet to be hired there is plenty of uncertainty around the club.
It could potentially get worse in the summer transfer market as well, with star man Jay Rodriguez reportedly being targeted by Premier League sides.
Burnley and Bournemouth are the two team looking at the reliable striker, according to the Express and Star, although the club will surely be keen to hang onto him having netted 22 times last season.
But what will the player be thinking?
At 29, Rodriguez will not have too many more opportunities to play in the top-flight so I think he would be incredibly tempted by a move to either Turf Moore or the Vitality.
With a new manager set to come, there is no guarantees yet that West Brom will be in as strong a place as they were this season – meaning he may end up wasting a valuable season in the second-tier.
I do not think he would be against a Baggies stay but his head could easily be turned by a move to the Premier League.
