QPR winger undergoes West Brom medical ahead of £5.5m transfer

QPR winger Matt Philips had a medical with West Bromwich Albion ahead of his £5.5 million transfer to the Premier League outfit according to the Daily Mail.

The Scotland international will be Albion boss Tony Pulis’ first transfer of the summer when he puts pen-to-paper.

West Brom finished last season in 14th place and have already parted ways with Victor Anichebe, Anders Lindegaard and Stephane Sessegnon.

Philips is expected to travel with his new teammates to Austria for West Brom’s pre-season summer training program on Thursday according to the Express.

The report claims QPR wanted £10 million for the 25-year-old midfielder last summer but that Pulis was insistent on agreeing a lower price.

The Championship side were pressured into accepting a lower transfer fee than they initially wanted due to Philips having just 12 months remaining on his contract.

The Scotland international found the back of the net eight times and setup five goals for QPR in 44 Championship games last season.
