Robinson eager for West Brom to find Phillips solution

West Brom defender Paul Robinson is keen to see Kevin Phillips secured to a new contract.

He said: "It's up in the air at the moment but hopefully it will be sorted out. He is a massive player for us and in the end his goals were probably the reason we got promoted last season.

"I know that Kev would like to stay. We are close friends and our families get on really well. But I know whatever Kev does will have to be right for him and his family. There is no problem for me with Kev.

"He scored 24 goals last season so I don't see a problem with his fitness. He is 34 years old but he knows his own body better than anyone else.

"If he thinks he can play on in the Premier League that is good enough for me.

"All the lads want him to stay because he is a good character to have around the place and the younger lads can learn so much from him."
