Mowbray: No-one leaves West Brom

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray has ruled out allowing any of his players to leave this month.

"Without naming names, there were one or two players who were going to go out in the early part of this week," he told the WBA website. "Things were put in place but I will make some calls and there is every chance that won't happen.

"When things like that develop, I have an affinity with my players. If they are not playing, and are a little bit unhappy, I don't want to stand in the way of their careers and lives.

"If they want to go and we can facilitate it, I am always happy to let footballers move on.

"I have shown that in the past and I have let some very talented players leave this club.

"As long as you get the right price for them, or it is a loan deal where they are going to get some football, and it is giving them a perspective and happiness in their life, then fine.

"Ultimately, the club and the team have to come first and, at the moment, with the injuries we are carrying, I don't think we have the scope to let too many out on loan.

"There may be an opportunity for a young player, who is not even in the squad, to go.

"But, generally, the first-team squad needs to stick together. Like cowboys, we need to stick the wagons in a circle and wait until we come out the other end of our injury problems."
