West Brom: Joseph Chapman predicts summer clearout

West Brom: Joseph Chapman predicts summer clearout -West Bromwich Albion News

West Bromwich Albion could part company with at least nine players in next summer’s transfer window, according to journalist Joseph Chapman for The Birmingham Mail

The lowdown

Four players – Sam Johnstone, Romaine Sawyers, Callum Robinson and Andy Carroll – left West Brom permanently last summer, while Alex Mowatt and Cedric Kipre sealed loan exits.

The Baggies acquired six new faces, but only spent £1.21m, making predominant use of free transfers.

Meanwhile, they have four senior players in the final 12 months of their deals and currently poised to walk away for nothing – Kyle Bartley, Jake Livermore, Kean Bryan and Kenneth Zohore.

The latest

It’s ‘unlikely’, Chapman writes, that West Brom will look to renew any of the players who are out of contract at the end of the season.

He added that youngsters Saul Shotton, Rico Richards, Mo Faal, Jamie Andrews and Quevin Castro are expected to leave too.

Those exits will necessitate a ‘critical squad rebuild’ ahead of the 2023/24 campaign.

Baggies fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the 21/22 campaign?

The verdict

Who is the standout name in the list of likely departures?

You’d probably say Jake Livermore given that he’s Albion’s club captain.

The Englishman recently surpassed 200 appearances for the club, having joined from Hull City five years ago in a £10.35m deal which ranks inside West Brom’s eight biggest transfers.

He’s also a fairly high profile player in his own right, with seven senior appearances for England under his belt.
