'Not what we need', 'Culture of the club will die' - Transfer update splits many West Brom fans

West Brom fans are divided over the news that Sam Allardyce could end Filip Krovinovic’s loan spell this month.

Portuguese outlet Record report the Croatian is wanted by Greek side PAOK.

The midfielder was a regular under previous manager Slaven Bilic, but with the new boss keen to make additions he could be moved on.

Krovinovic is currently on loan at the club but has found game time harder to come by this season.

His 43 appearances last year showed his importance to the team, yet so far this campaign he has just five Premier League starts.

As a result, there is a lack of consensus amongst the fanbase in regard to a possible departure.

Some fans argue that the 25-year-old does not suit Allardyce’s style of play, since the former England manager is known for his defensive approach.

That means creative players like Krovinovic don’t really fit the mould.

Others feel he offers more than Romaine Sawyers, but Sawyers has started all four matches under Big Sam.

By contrast, Krovinovic has played just 17 minutes under Allardyce so he may be surplus to requirement.

Here is some of the discussion taking place amongst supporters in response to the news Krovinovic could leave.
