Kamil Grosicki‘s future at West Bromwich Albion remains unknown after Middlesbrough were linked with the Polish attacker.

The former Hull City winger moved to The Hawthorns back in the January transfer window as Slaven Bilic looked to enhance his attacking options in the ultimately successful pursuit of promotion to the Premier League.

Failing to appear thus far in England’s top flight for the Baggies, Grosicki found himself subject to interest from Nottingham Forest as the domestic transfer window came to a close.

Struggling to gain minutes on the pitch behind the likes of Grady Diangana, Callum Robinson and Matheus Pereira, Grosicki’s exit seemed likely.

However, Forest failed to submit the relevant paperwork on time (21 seconds too late) and the East Midlands side then had an appeal to push through the deal rejected.

Grosicki has since been confirmed in West Brom’s 25-man Premier League squad, but new interest from Boro is likely to see Forest potentially try again to secure his services.

Boro’s interest, which is reported by the Sunday Mirror (p.65, 1/11/20) [via HITC], comes after Neil Warnock’s side have made an excellent start to the Championship season, recently beating Forest 1-0 to stay in the top six.

Grosicki seems unlikely to gain playing time this term, especially before January for West Brom, and a move away from the club is probably the best thing for all concerned.

The 78-cap Polish winger has ample experience in the Championship, having played for Hull and West Brom at that level, so either ‘Boro or Forest would get a player who is familiar with the division.

Indeed, the 32-year-old was once described as “unplayable” by his former Hull team-mate Jackson Irvine.

Wouldn’t it be something if he could return to England’s second flight and secure another promotion to the Premier League.
