Bryan Robson has admitted that Robert Earnshaw could go if the price is right.West Brom boss Bryan Robson has admitted that Robert Earnshaw could go if a club comes in with the right offer.
The Wales international has repeatedly asked for a transfer from The Hawthorns, and Robson has rebuffed the request each time.
However, the manager has now accepted that he will have to consider any bid for the striker closely, further fuelling the speculation.
"If an offer comes in that's acceptable to the club and to me as managerthen we'll have to look at that, but at the moment we haven't had any bids for Rob," Robson told Sky Sports.
Earnshaw has become frustrated at his lack of opportunities this season, but is likely to get a run in the side with Kanu and Diomansy Kamara both flying out to the African Cup of Nations this month.
"Rob's been unsettled but I've said to him he's got to improve certain aspects of his game," Robson urged.
"If he does that and gets his chance in the coming month we'll have to take it from there."
Robson has given Earnshaw a DVD to highlight which areas of his game he needs to work on, just as he did with Junichi Inamoto earlier in the season.
"We did the same with Inamoto and he has added the defensive qualities that a central midfield player needs as part of his game," he explained
"Earnie has got a similar DVD to the one we gave `Ina'. It is about things like hold-up play and the timing of his runs which, for me, is what Earnie needsto add to his game to be a Premiership player."
