Jay Simpson-Man.City v West Brom (Sun)
West Brom manager Tony Mowbray has revealed that he will not leave Jay out of the Baggies side despite the striker re-iterating that he will return to Arsenal at the end of the season.
Speaking earlier this week, Mowbray said: ”Does it (wanting to go back to Arsenal) make it any more difficult for him? No. Like with any player who comes on loan, we’re not the parent club.
“You utilise and use loan players as best you can for your club and nothing has changed as far as I am concerned with Jay Simpson.”
