James McClean open to West Brom exit and reveals how the Baggies slapped a hefty valuation on him in January

Republic of Ireland international James McClean will give everything to the cause in West Brom's relegation scrap but is open to a move away from the Hawthorns this summer.

McClean has become frustrated by his role as a bit-part player for the Baggies over the past 18 months and is seeking regular first-team football.

There was speculation linking the Derry native with a loan move to Derby County but the 28-year-old revealed that the Rams baulked at the £15m valuation West Brom had placed on the winger

McClean has been sprung from the bench in 16 of his 25 appearances this season and feels he has more to offer the team.

“I want regular football, wherever that may be. If it’s the right fit for me and it provides me with regular football then I’m open to anything,” said McClean who has made six starts since Alan Pardew replaced Tony Pulis as manager.

“I just want to play football. I’m 28 now and the last 18 months have been really frustrating. I feel that I’m at my best when I get a run of games. I feel that’s eluded me this past 18 months when I would get a few games and then the team is changed for whatever reason.

“Ideally I’d rather play week-in, week-out at West Brom but that hasn’t been the case at the minute. I’ll work hard like I always do but, for me, regular football is the be all and end all.

“We’re in a relegation fight now at West Brom and we need everyone pulling the same direction. I’ll give 110 per cent while I’m at West Brom to make sure we get the best results possible,

“There was no loan offer from Derby. It was a permanent deal but it didn’t materialise.

“West Brom had their value and I’m not in the game to dictate my value - that’s up to clubs to do.

“I think West Brom wanted £15 million but Derby weren’t prepared to pay that whether I think that’s wrong or not, it’s not up to me to say. “I just want to play football whether that’s at West Brom or not. While I’m at West Brom for however long that may be, I’ll give everything for the cause like I always do.

“If I move on in the summer, no matter where I go, I’ll always give my all. I can’t dwell on it (Derby’s failed bid).The move didn’t happen. If you dwell on things that don’t happen, moves and what not, it’s gone so there’s no point dwelling on it. We’re in a dogfight and I’m ready to play my part. We need everyone fighting and pulling in the same direction.”
