West Bromwich Albion fans would have expected a few departures from the squad due to the club’s relegation from the Premier League.
Darren Moore will have the task of trying to guide the Baggies back to the top flight, but he may have to do it with a new-look team.
Jonny Evans has already been granted a move to Leicester City, and now Craig Dawson and Jay Rodriguez are being targeted by a Premier League club.

Burnley are believed to be preparing a £25m offer for both players, but the Express & Star claims that the bid will be rejected as the Baggies value the players much higher and would rather not sell at all.
West Brom are in a decent position with regards to negotiations as Dawson has two years remaining on his contract and Rodriguez has three.
It would be understandable, though, if the players did consider leaving given that Burnley can offer Premier League football.
West Brom fans have been having their say on the transfer speculation.
Burnley are now a bigger attraction then us ,what a shambles we are

I personally value Dawson as highly, if not higher, than Rodriguez despite strikers clearly being more expensive. I wouldn’t entertain anything under £35-40m for the pair

Set to reject !!! Should have been rejected without a second thought !!!

I really don’t care what happens with Rodríguez… but losing Dawson would be one of the most serious consequences of relegation… we just ain’t going to see the quality of the likes of him or Evans again, for a long, long time. #wba

Can’t see us accepting anything less than £40m for the two of them. What would Burnley want for Tarkowski? Dawson and Rodriguez both under contract, in their prime and English.

If they double it they may get a deal #wba

20 million each at least. Anyone else selling English talent would charge a bomb so why don’t we.

Think I’d prefer to keep them both around this year and see what happens. If it becomes clear we’re nowhere near the playoffs come Winter transfer window we could get good offers then barring an injury or a complete loss of form for either guy
