‘I want to play’ – West Brom man makes clear statement over future after Championship loan spell

West Brom attacker Karlan Grant faces an uncertain future at the Hawthorns and he has addressed his plans in an interview with Birmingham Live.

West Brom are eight points clear of 7th placed Hull City and look on course to secure a place in the play-offs as things stand. They are currently 5th in the table.

The summer transfer window saw several outgoings from the Hawthorns, with perhaps none as high profile as Grant. The 26-year-old joined fellow Championship side Cardiff City on a season-long loan.

Having been deemed surplus to requirements initially, he does face an uncertain future at his parent club. Speaking to Birmingham Live, he provided an update on what the future may hold.

“We’ll have to see. I’ve still got years left on my contract at West Brom, so it’s a conversation for the clubs to have. I’ll go back and have a chat with my representatives and we’ll see what the best option is for me. It’s [a season-long loan] a first time for me. I’ve never done it before,” he said.

“It’ll be interesting. Like I said I’ve still got a couple of years left on my contract at West Brom. I will be going back there but we’ll see how things pan out. It’ll depend on the situation. I’ll have a conversation with the manager and my representatives and see what the best outcome is for me, because ultimately it’s about my career.

“I want to play games, that’s the most important thing and I’ve been lucky enough to do that this year. I don’t think sitting on a bench is fun for any player, and I’ve enjoyed being able to come here and play.”

Grant will be hoping to be part of the starting eleven when Cardiff City face Sunderland tomorrow afternoon. He may have one eye on parent club West Brom who travel to Millwall.

Days are limited at West Brom

It seems Grant would be deemed surplus to requirements yet again in the summer. Having been moved on temporarily to Cardiff City, another loan or permanent move could be on the cards in a few months time.

There are several players ahead of Grant in the pecking order at the Hawthorns but they could look to cash in on him should a bid comes in that matches or exceeds their valuation.

He may have done enough for the Bluebirds to take a punt on the forward and for them to place an offer. But only time will tell. Grant wants to play games and that is looking increasingly unlikely at West Brom.
