Breaking News ! Kamil against the clock Kamil Grosicki has until Wednesday evening to secure a move back to Poland as the nation’s transfer window prepares to close. The West Brom winger, a full international, appears to have no future in the Albion set-up having been left out of the match-day squad for the last six consecutive matches - he’d started the previous three. The chances of potential first team opportunities reduced further after the flurry of transfer additions at the end of the winter window. Indeed the player had been informed that he is free to find himself a new club, though he turned down the chance to join Nottingham Forest at the second attempt.

Following Semi Ajayi’s red card on the half hour mark, Allardyce was forced to shuffle his pack; Matt Phillips was withdrawn for extra defensive reinforcements and central midfielder Maitland-Niles was shifted out to a wider role. It worked a treat in the second and almost bore fruit for the ten men, who passed up a number of key opportunities to take the lead against the out of sorts Clarets. Maitland-Niles, who views himself as a central midfielder going forwards - something that played a part in him opting for Albion in the January transfer window amid a host of other offers - played a key role in all that Albion did well in the second half as they took the game to their hosts at Turf Moor.

. The Chelsea midfielder has featured 21 times this season in what has been a learning curve of a campaign for a 21-year-old who had previously never played at this level before. He’d earned it, of course; Gallagher put in the hard yards at both ends of the Championship table with Charlton and Swansea last term and drew admiring glances from Albion throughout the campaign. Alongside Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Okay Yokuslu, the club’s loan additions in the January transfer window, Gallagher has rediscovered his early season form and has found himself a key role in this new-look Sam Allardyce side.
The West Brom star who is walking a card tightrope until April
Midfielder link West Brom and Newcastle United are among a cluster of Premier League clubs who have been credited with an interest in Cardiff City starlet Kieron Evans. Attacker Evans, who can play behind the striker or operate out wide, is a Wales under-19 international and has been on the fringes of Cardiff’s first-team squad this term - he has made the match-day squad four times in all, on each occasion under former boss Neil Harris. His exploits in the club’s under 23s, who have been performing well under former striker Steve Morison, have attracted the interest of a host of top flight clubs including Albion, reports WalesOnline.
West Brom and Newcastle United linked with moves for youth star
'Light years' Former West Brom boss Pepe Mel claims that the Premier League is ‘light years’ ahead of La Liga. Mel replaced Steve Clarke and took charge of the club in January 2014 with the club in relegation bother. They eventually survived by the skin of their teeth. While Mel won’t go down as a success of an appointment, the man himself - who enjoyed quite an affinity with large sections of the fanbase during his short tenure - still reflects fondly on his spell with Albion and has explained how he took a lot away from it. The Spanish game might be more attractive and there is more thought put into executing tactics, but the English equivalent shows more organisation, Mel claims. He also learned a lot when it came to training, day to day.

Seagulls concerns Brighton and Hove Albion are sweating on the fitness of key pair Tariq Lamptey and Adam Webster for the trip to West Brom this Saturday. The Seagulls lost to rivals Crystal Palace at the AMEX Stadium on Monday evening, thanks to Christian Benteke’s last-gasp winner, and were without centre half Webster and right-back Lamptey for the meeting. Indeed in the case of the latter, an exciting addition from Chelsea last term, he hasn’t been seen since suffering an injury in the middle of December. Webster, meanwhile, rolled his ankle in a meeting with Burnley recently and was clearly missed as they conceded more than a single goal in the game for the first time in 10 matches.
