Kamil Grosicki intends to stay at West Brom beyond the January transfer window and fight for his place in the side, report Polish outlet Meczyki.
That may leave Grosicki short of options, so he now aims to win over Sam Allardyce, despite the new boss signing a winger this month in Robert Snodgrass.
Nevertheless, the Poland international intends to see out the remainder of his £25,000 a week contract, which expires in the summer.
Bad news for Baggies
If it is true that talks with Forest over Grosicki have failed then that is a cause for concern.
The winger hasn’t managed to force his way into a struggling side this campaign and freeing up his wages would have been good.
Big Sam has made it clear since coming in that he intends to make several additions to the club.
That means he is not satisfied with the current options at his disposal – players like Grosicki – and therefore he needs an adequate budget to recruit new players.
Forest have long been admirers of Grosicki and we ought to snap their hands off as he has made just five goal contributions since joining a year ago.
Snodgrass is an upgrade on the former Hull player and we don’t see a path back to the side for him, particularly after the Blackpool defeat.
As a result, this is unwelcome news and hopefully this transfer saga takes a new twist before the month is up.
