The transfer market for domestic moves closes on October 16, meaning there is still a month for deals to be thrashed out. And despite seeing his side lose 3-0 on their return to the top flight at the weekend, Bilic is clearly in no rush to push through a deal for Grant, or anyone else for that matter, if it does not make sense financially. “Unless we can get someone that I or we think gives us something we don’t have, then what’s the point?" Bilic said.

“We were in a difficult situation - not just because of Covid - but we were in a difficult situation where we had to spend our funds to keep the players we had last season on loan. "Then phase two is to improve your squad which you have to do because you are going to play one level up.” Last week Corberan emphasised his stance on Grant, admitting he fully expects the 22-year-old to depart for pastures new.

He said: "I think the situation with Karlan Grant is exactly the same situation as we had last week, because he's a player that we think has a lot of options to not continue with us. "I prefer to be focused now on the players that we are going to have in the league. "The situation with him did not change in the last week and we are going to see what will be the future with him." Bilic wants to inject pace into his forward department, which currently consists of Charlie Austin, Kenneth Zohore and Hal Robson-Kanu - though none of them started on Sunday in the defeat to Leicester, and only the latter was handed any minutes at all. In Grant, Albion see a player of a good age with a number of attractive attributes - he scored 19 goals in a struggling Town side last season, including one against Albion.
