West Brom: Jay Rodriguez’s market value has plummeted since Hawthorns exit

West Brom have not been shy when it comes to signing new players from fellow English clubs over the past few years.

One player that the Baggies didn’t have to go too far to sign is Jay Rodriguez, who made the move to the Hawthorns back in the 2017 summer transfer window from Southampton in a deal worth a reported fee of £12m.

During his time at the Midlands club, the Englishman racked up 33 goals in 90 appearances across all competitions, chipping in with eight assists along the way.

Which La Liga club did West Brom sign Okay Yokuslu on loan from in the 2021 January transfer window?

In the 2019 summer transfer window, the Baggies sold the attacker, who had been called a “disaster” by Tony Brown in the past, back to his former club Burnley for a total fee of £10m in two payments of £5m.

Since re-joining the Lancashire side, the 32-year-old, who is currently picking up a weekly wage of £60k-per-week according to Salary Sport, has only managed to score 20 goals in 100 appearances.

This has presumably contributed to the fact that Transfermarkt now has the striker’s market value listed as £2.7m when it was previously at £10.8m in May 2018 in the midst of his tenure with West Brom.

This season has seen the former Baggies star score just one goal and provide two assists in the Premier League for Sean Dyche’s side in 22 league appearances as well as earning himself a disappointing overall performance rating of 6.38/10, making him one of the lowest-rated players in the squad according to WhoScored.

Were West Brom right to sell Jay Rodriguez?





Taking all of this into account, it’s safe to say that former West Brom sporting and technical director Luke Dowling pulled a blinder in selling Rodriguez when he did, especially with the fact that they managed to get a reasonably close transfer fee to what the club paid for him in the first place.

Even though the Midlands club have struggled when it comes to scoring goals in the Championship this season, which is arguably what has cost them getting promoted back to the Premier League, it would be hard to see many Baggies supporters pining to have Rodriguez back at the Hawthorns given how disappointing he’s been for his current club in this campaign.
