Slaven Bilic has indicated that, as Branislav Ivanovic, Semi Ajayi and Dara O’Shea are all ahead of Cedric Kipre in the pecking order at West Bromwich Albion, the latter is likely to leave the club on loan in January.
23-year-old Kipre was signed in September from Wigan Athletic, but he has so far made just two appearances for the Baggies, both in the League Cup. Despite West Brom struggling at the wrong end of the table in the Premier League, it does not look like he will feature more regularly any time soon.
Bilic has now suggested that Kipre will leave on a short-term basis in a couple of months, and this has attracted plenty of attention from the Baggies supporters. They appear to be questioning why he was even signed in the first place if there was no intention of playing him.
Should Kipre leave on loan in January?
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Kipre

Give him a chance then

The poor lad obviously wasn’t a Slav signing. He’ll be fine for our assault on next years promotion push. #WBA

What a waste of money

We knew that when we signed him. It was only injuries and Cup games where he would get game time.

Should never have signed him. Sell him on free some wages and then get someone who will play. Same with players like peltier not playing
