West Brom Striker Set For Summer Move

West Brom striker Markus Rosenberg

West Brom boss Steve Clarke has admitted that striker Markus Rosenberg may be allowed to leave the club in the summer.

The Swedish international has not been able to make much of an impact at the Hawthorns this season after his summer move from Werder Bremen.

Rosenberg is not content with sitting on the bench each week and so is set for key discussions with Clarke when the season comes to an end.

West Brom will lose Romelu Lukaku who will move back to Chelsea when his loan spell ends and Nigerian striker Peter Odemwingie who has massively fallen out with the club after a comical January transfer deadline day.

Those departures plus Rosenberg will leave Shane Long and Marc Antoine Fortune as the only first team strikers at the club preventing Clarke from accepting Rosenberg’s departure easily.

“It’s been a frustrating season for Markus. He’s never really been given the chance to show his potential, mainly down to the form of the other players,” Clarke told Sky Sports.

“Does he stay beyond this season? That is not a discussion we’ve had yet. I’m sure between now and next season we have to sit down and discuss things because he is not a young man anymore.

“He is not the type of person who is happy to sit on the bench and just pick up his money. I’m sure it’s a conversation we will have.

“We will sit down and decide what is the best thing for Markus and West Brom.”
