Phillips, Albion´s top scorer last season with 24 goals, is attracting the interest of Blues boss Alex McLeish, but Baggies manager Mowbray is keen to keep the 34-year-old and held talks with him on Thursday.
He said: "I had a good chat with Kevin and, until something is resolved either way, I don´t really want to say too much. We are getting on with our jobs now with the players that are here. I am pretty sure it will be resolved one way or the other in the next day or two."
