West Brom looking to tie up deal for QPR winger Matt Phillips

HITC Sport understands that any deal could be purely cash, but may also include players heading in the opposite direction.

West Bromwich Albion are looking to tie up a deal for Queens Park Rangers winger Matt Phillips ahead of Tuesday's transfer deadline, HITC Sport understands.

Tony Pulis is a big fan of the Scottish wide-man, who can also play across the forward line and he has been linked with a move all summer following QPR's relegation from the Premier League.

The 24-year-old is valued at over £10million by QPR, which has put off a number of potential suitors so far, but West Brom are keen on trying to broker a deal.

HITC Sport understands that West Brom could include players in the deal, but are also happy to table purely cash - depending on the terms.

As QPR have shown with Charlie Austin, they will not let any player leave until their value is met - but QPR sources have confirmed to HITC Sport that Phillips could very well leave in the coming days.
