“They Might Offer…” – West Bromwich Albion Star Opens Up On Future

West Bromwich Albion star Andreas Weimann has revealed that he doesn’t feel stressed about his future being uncertain despite his deal with Bristol City expiring at the end of the season.

The attacker is on international duty at the moment with the Austria national team under the guidance of former Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick and will be hoping he can impress the German coach ahead of EURO 2024 which kicks off in the summer.

Weimann spent the first half of the campaign at Ashton Gate but failed to find his form in a struggling side. In mid-January, the experienced frontman moved to the Hawthorns on a six-month loan deal as head coach Carlos Corberan was looking to bolster his attacking department amid a battle for promotion.

While the 32-year-old hasn’t set the world alight in the West Midlands, he has still scored two goals in ten appearances for the Baggies which is one more than he managed in double the matches with Bristol City.

The former Derby County and Aston Villa striker is out of contract in the summer after his loan spell with West Bromwich Albion expires and there have been no rumours that the Robins are looking to offer him a new deal before the end of the campaign.

However, in an interview with German outlet Kicker, Weimann has admitted that he is unphased about his undetermined future and is enjoying playing for West Brom at the moment as Corberan’s side vy for a place in the Premier League next season [quotes via Sport Witness]:

“If it goes well, they might offer me a contract and if not, it still doesn’t look too bad that I might end up with another team that’s playing for promotion again,” he said.

“I have no stress or pressure. I’m enjoying the fact that we’re playing for something now and then we’ll see in the summer.”

Weimann still has time to prove to Corberan that he has what it takes to play at the highest level once more, just as he did during his days at Villa Park. Given that the Austrian will be out of contract in the summer, the manager may be tempted to make this low-risk deal a permanent one should he find form in the final few weeks.

West Bromwich Albion supporters can expect a new and revitalised Weimann after the international break, one who will be desperate to stay at The Hawthorns next season and will be keen to play at the Euros in what will likely be his final tournament for his country.
