Wigan Athletic are among clubs watching Kevin Phillips' new contract talks with West Brom.
The Sun says the former England striker will quit Albion at the end of the season - even if they win promotion to the Premier League.
Phillips, 34, whose contract runs out this summer, will join either Wigan or Derby on a free.
A source said: "Kevin is disappointed with the contract he has been offered at The Hawthorns.
"He feels the terms do not reflect his achievements this season."
