West Brom are ready to allow Robert Snodgrass to depart The Hawthorns in January, as per a report from The Sun on Sunday (28.11.21 – p.59).
The vastly experienced left-sided player signed for the Baggies in January last year with the Midlands club still operating in Englands’ top flight.

Snodgrass has featured six times for the Baggies this Championship season, with his appearances coming when West Brom have had key personnel missing.

Snodgrass undoubtedly has the ability to remain in England’s second-tier, but a move somewhere unfamiliar could also be on the cards.
