Kamil Grosicki appears to be finished at West Bromwich Albion after spending the season on the periphery under Slaven Bilic and Polish football analyst Mateusz Borek doesn’t believe Sam Allardyce’s recent arrival at The Hawthorns will boost his chances of playing.

Speaking on Mission Futbol (via Meczyki) after the Baggies lost 0-3 to Aston Villa on Sunday, when Grosicki was not involved, Borek explained: “Kamil Grosicki did not come in again, so it does not seem that his situation will change.

“After this [defeat] others will probably get a chance. A new coach has arrived, he will have a good look at the players this week and will probably make some changes.”

The 32-year-old has only made two appearances in all competitions this term, amassing a paltry 65 minutes of first team football, having fallen behind Kyle Edwards, Grady Diangana, Matheus Pereira and Matt Phillips in the pecking order.

Grosicki has been reduced to playing reserve team football this season and will be made available for sale in January. Since joining from Hull City earlier this year, he has scored only one goal in 16 games and has three assists to his name.

The Polish international has made the matchday squad in Albion’s last four Premier League games, but has only featured once and was an unused substitute on the other three occasions (Transfermarkt).


Grosicki isn’t likely to get much change under Allardyce, so next month could see him finally offloaded.

Nottingham Forest are one club who have shown an interest in the winger, but there may be others keen on his signature when the transfer window opens.

In other news, West Bromwich Albion are targeting this defender as Sam Allardyce plans to raid his former club.
