The FA could launch an investigation into West Brom over the Robert Snodgrass debacle, reports Daily Mail journalist Sami Mokbel.
Another journalist claimed on Wednesday that Albion would not receive a “serious sanction” as a result of the Premier League investigation, but it seems the club is not yet out of the woods.
That is because the FA are currently monitoring the situation and could make a decision once the Premier League’s own investigation concludes.
Sam Allardyce revealed post-match on Tuesday that a gentlemen’s agreement was put in place in the Snodgrass deal, which reportedly goes against Premier League rules.
It seems this saga is going to rumble on for a little longer yet.
The news on Wednesday was very positive and many would have thought the situation was done and dusted, with a reasonable outcome reached.
However, if the FA also looks into our transfer dealing with West Ham it could distract Big Sam and the players.
We need to focus solely on our next opponent, Man City, and making more additions before the transfer deadline.
The Snodgrass dealing may have broken the rules but it is only a slight infringement, and our biggest punishment is arguably losing the match without Snodgrass.
Furthermore, if the Premier League as decided that a warning or small fine is the best outcome, why do the FA need to get involved?
It’s just a distraction that West Brom could do without at the moment.
