Robert Snodgrass has an uncertain future at West Bromwich Albion as he’s been short of form, fitness and playing time this season. The 34-year-old has made only 6/26 Championship appearances, amassing 389 minutes of football from a possible 2340, so the writing appears to be on the wall in January.

Snodgrass hasn’t featured for West Brom since November and hasn’t made the matchday squad since either. The Scottish international, who has made only 15 appearances in his 12 months at the Hawthorns, finds himself behind Jake Livermore, Alex Mowatt, Taylor Gardner-Hickman and Jayson Molumby in the pecking order.

With Valerien Ismael continuing to overlook Snodgrass, Kevin Phillips believes he’ll leave before the transfer window shut. He told West Brom News: “I would have thought (he’d leave this month). From all parties concerned, Snodgrass might go, it’s been made clear he’s not in the plans.

“I’m pretty sure he’s on a decent wage there so if they can get him through the door and free that up, that might be the option to bring a couple of players in on his salary alone. It makes sense. Snodgrass will just want to go play football somewhere.”

Snodgrass is in the eve of his career and won’t enjoy being left out of the squad every week, so a move away looks on the cards. It remains to be seen where he’ll go, but his exit could help fund new additions given he’s a high-earner at Albion.
