According to a report from The Sun on Sunday (print edition; 14th January 2018; page 59), West Brom could consider selling both Salomon Rondon and Oliver Burke to raise funds as they look to secure Premier League survival.

The Baggies beat Brighton 2-0 at The Hawthorns at the weekend, but still find themselves second-bottom in the Premier League two points off safety having not won since August before the Seagulls' visit.

Alan Pardew is yet to complete a transfer since the January window opened, and The Sun on Sunday has hinted that he may now be interested in raising some funds by selling two of the club's most expensive signings.

Rondon arrived for £12 million back in 2015, according to Sky Sports, while Burke cost West Brom £15 million in the summer, the Guardian reports, after arriving from RB Leipzig. Both players became the club's most expensive signings ever when they respectively came through the door.

Burke has struggled to make an impact since arriving during the previous window. He has been injured and has managed to make just one league start, making a further seven appearances from the bench.

Rondon meanwhile, boasts a fairly underwhelming record in front of goal, scoring 20 times in 93 top flight appearances, with just three league goals coming this term.

It would perhaps be a gamble to sell either however. West Brom do not have a large group of strikers available, so letting Rondon go without having a replacement lined up could be a risk, even if he is struggling to show his best form.

And Burke was always going to be a signing for the future, so while their transfer funds may improve significantly if they let him go this month, it would be no surprise if they ultimately were left kicking themselves if he realises his potential elsewhere.
