The only option available to Grosicki is a move back to Poland as their transfer window doesn’t shut until midnight. His future must be resolved by the end of today, but his lucrative wage demands have been a stumbling block in negotiations.
Polsat Sport claimed that West Brom are willing to buy out his £40,000-a-week contract so that he can be released, but he has so far spurned the opportunity to leave and may run down his deal instead. Albion would do well to save money by mutual termination, but instead Grosicki looks likely to stick around.
While the report claimed that Legia Warsaw could capitalise on Pogoń Szczecin’s failure to sign Grosicki in recent days, it doesn’t look feasible. At 32, he is approaching the eve of his career, hasn’t set West Brom alight over the last year and is on a lot of money for the PKO Ekstraklasa.

It does seem likely that Grosicki will stay for another four months before West Brom are rid of him.
The Poland international has had opportunities to leave in the last two transfer windows but opted to stick around instead – a stubbornness he could come to regret.
