West Bromwich Albion winger Matt Phillips has been linked with a move to fellow Championship side Middlesbrough.

TEAMtalk report that ‘Boro boss Tony Pulis is keen on a reunion with the player, who he, of course, managed during his near three-year reign at the Hawthorns.

The Scottish international featured 30 times in the Premier League for the Baggies last season, mostly from the right of midfield in the 4-4-2 system.

His two goals and two assists were not enough to prevent the club being relegated to the Championship.

He fared much better the season before, scoring four goals and providing eight assists for his teammates.

Pulis could sell the highly-coveted Adama Traore in an attempt to raise cash for the purchases of Phillips and Albert Adomah of Aston Villa, who are being forced to listen to offers for the majority of their squad due to their financial situation.

Phillips joined the Baggies in 2016 from Queens Park Rangers, signing a four-year contract.

He has played at Championship level on a number of occasions, and that experience could benefit whichever club he plays for next season in their bid to get promoted back to the top table of English football.
