Nacer Chadli unsure of his West Bromwich Albion future

Nacer Chadli has refused to speak about his West Bromwich Albion future ahead of the summer World Cup in Russia. The 28-year-old had played no part for the Baggies during the second half of the season with a thigh injury but he still managed to make the cut for the summer World Cup with Belgium.

Following his selection, Chadli was asked about his future with the Baggies to which he replied: “I don't know. I have told my agent already, I won't speak with anybody. If I have to go [and speak], I will go on my holidays and maybe have some meetings.” Meanwhile, Chadli also had fond words to say about Darren Moore, who has recently been appointed as the club’s permanent head coach, he added:“Everybody saw what kind of manager he is. He had some great ideas with the group. He spoke a lot about unity which is very important. He had very good results, we had some good games in the last five weeks of the season. He brings hope to the club and to everyone around him.”

Chadli currently has two years remaining on his Baggies deal signed during the summer of 2016 but judging by his comments, he appears certain to leave the Hawthorns ahead of next season. His exit could further be enhanced with the presence of a £16m relegation release clause which would make him affordable for most of his interested clubs.

Meanwhile, the Baggies have a huge task ahead of returning to the top-flight with a number of players due to leave the club. Aside from Chadli, the likes of Ahmed Hegazi, Jonny Evans, Jay Rodriguez, and Salomon Rondon are expected to leave the club and Moore needs to find the right players during the summer to guide the Baggies to promotion in the first coming.
