West Brom boss Mowbray warns off contract trio

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray has warned off contract trio Kevin Phillips, Martin Albrechtsen and Zoltan Gera he won't be held to ransom.

He said: "We are not in the business of players going out and checking the rest of the world, then coming back with their best offer asking us to try to beat it. We don't operate like that.

"It should never be about money for me. They know where we are as a club and they will be offered the best contracts this club can offer. If they want to ply their trade elsewhere for more money, then good luck to them.

"The squad is what everybody has got to respect. I respect the squad and we will not be 'busting the bank' for any single player. Their agents know that and if they want to hawk them around and get a better price and salary package, we won't be budging.

"We won't be breaking structures and it is that simple, because I want to be fair to the squad and the other players. If they get better packages that are out of our ball park, then good luck to them."
