Baggies prepare for Phillips exit

Published Add your comment

West Brom manager Tony Mowbray admits he expects to lose veteran striker Kevin Phillips this summer.

Former Sunderland striker Phillips, who turns 35 later this month, is holding out for a two-year contract. However West Brom are prepared to offer only one year, and Phillips could spurn the chance to play in the Barclays Premier League by stepping down to join a club in the Coca-Cola Championship.

Mowbray said: "I´m pretty sure his preferred choice would be to stay here. But, at this moment, it is unlikely he will stay here."
