Several West Brom fans have expressed their dismay following reports from The Sun on Sunday (14/10; page 61) which have suggested that the Baggies board are ready to consider selling Oli Burke, with Spurs, Newcastle and Brighton amongst his potential admirers.
Burke has endured a difficult time since arriving at The Hawthorns for £15 million. He made just two starts in the Premier League last season and has only been on the pitch for 14 minutes in the Championship this term.
His situation has perplexed many West Brom fans, and now it would appear that the board are willing to throw the towel in and sell the winger as they attempt to get the funds together to make a move for Blackburn's Bradley Dack.
The Sun on Sunday (14/10; page 61) reported that West Brom could sell Burke, and he could be offered the chance to return to the Premier League with Spurs, Newcastle and Brighton all scouting him during a recent Checkatrade Trophy game.
Despite Burke not making a particularly notable impact since arriving at West Brom, the news that the Championship high-flyers are considering selling has not gone down well with the fans - though some seem resigned to the idea of selling him.
Burke has shown in the past - and in glimpses with West Brom - that he can be an incredibly dangerous player, and several of the supporters on social media have suggested that Darren Moore should keep faith with the Scotland international as selling him would be a massive mistake.
Here is how some of the West Brom fans have reacted to the reports...
Real shame this. I had high hopes, but it seems things are not clicking. Saw him against Mansfield in the LC and he looked a forlorn figure, nothing going right for him on the pitch, head down.— neil (@vespaned) October 14, 2018
Makes complete sense. However, who will offer what the club deem acceptable? We will have to be prepared to make a huge loss of the deal, which is very un-Albion like.— The Shepherd (@DickLaurent96) October 14, 2018
