Kamil Grosicki came close to leaving West Bromwich Albion for Nottingham Forest last summer, but the deal never went through due to a delay in filing transfer related paperwork.

Despite the Championship side’s failed efforts to sign the winger, the latter said last month he maintained contact with Chris Hughton’s side.

With a contract expiring at the end of this season and not featuring regularly for the Baggies, the Poland international was expected to leave The Hawthorns in January to boost his chances of making it to Euro 2020.

According to Meczyki, the 32-year-old will ‘definitely not move to’ Nottingham Forest in the winter market.

It’s claimed the player has ‘made a decision’ and has decided to stay at West Brom and fight for his place in the team. The ex-Hull City man communicated the same to the Premier League side’s leaders on Tuesday.

Sam Allardyce started the Pole in the FA Cup tie against Blackpool and he registered an assist after playing the entire match.

The report also hints finances could be motive behind Grosicki’s decision to continue with his current employer. He earns £35,000 per week and his wages will increase to £40,000 if he makes one more appearance in the league.

Grosicki has made one appearance in the Premier League this season. Should there be no improvement in his situation beyond January, he will consider the ‘emergency option’, which is to return to the Polish league on a short loan deal.

The mid-season transfer window in Poland opens on February 1st and closes a month later, and hence, a return to his homeland is viewed as an ‘emergency option’.

Meczyki explain there are several Polish clubs willing to take the player, but his wages will be a problem for them to sign him. A loan deal would be possible if West Brom cover a large part of his wages.

Grosicki, for his part, will only consider joining one of Pogoń Szczecin, Legia Warsaw and Jagiellonia Białystok.

At the moment, the website adds his priority is to fight for a place at the English club.
