With the transfer window set to close on January 31st, it will be intriguing to see whether West Bromwich Albion manager Slaven Bilic opts to cut ties with any of his players in the coming weeks.
Given that the Baggies are currently fighting for automatic promotion to the Premier League, they cannot afford to be carrying any passengers if they are to achieve this goal.
Whilst the likes of Matheus Pereira, Romaine Sawyers and Semi Ajayi are expected to play a key role for West Brom during the remainder of the season, it could be argued that there are several individuals who could potentially benefit from some time away from the Hawthorns.
Keeping this mind, here are three players who we think will surely want to leave the Baggies this month…
Having enjoyed an extremely successful spell with West Brom in which he has made 416 appearances in all competitions, it may be time for Brunt to seek a move elsewhere.
Currently be forced to watch on from the sidelines due to the form illustrated by Sawyers and Jake Livermore, the midfielder has been limited to just nine appearances in all competitions.
Very much in the twilight of his career, Brunt could opt to join to Stoke City who were linked with a move for him earlier this month.
Since joining the Baggies last summer on a season-long loan deal from Benfica, Chris Willock has been used exclusively by the club in their Under-23 set-up.
Despite the fact that he has been scoring on a regular basis at youth level for West Brom, he has yet to make an appearance for their senior side.
Given that Huddersfield Town and Stoke are reportedly interested in signing him, Willock ought to consider leaving the Hawthorns as doing so may allow him to make significant strides in terms of his development.
One of the Baggies’ most exciting young talents, Rayhaan Tulloch has been a star performer for the club’s Under-23 side in recent months.

As well as scoring seven goals in the Premier League 2 division, the forward has also provided two assists.
Although he was handed a brief cameo against Charlton Athletic earlier this month, it could be argued that Tulloch may be able to improve his all-round game by joining a lower league side until the end of the 2019/20 campaign.
Providing that he is given the opportunity to express himself on a regular basis at senior level, the England Under-18 international could return to the Hawthorns later this year as a much more accomplished player.
