Orlandi Appreciates Bridcutt Position

All players want to play at the highest level, that doesn't make Liam Bridcutt any different. His current teammate, but for how much longer isn't known, Andrea Orlandi has moved to support Bridcutt in the wake of the ongoing saga surrounding his possible move to Sunderland.

Orlandi has said that he'd like to work with former Albion manager Gus Poyet again if he could, and would also want to play Premier League football, so can appreciate the position that Bridcutt is in.

Contrary to reports, or what can often happen when a player expresses a desire to move on but hasn't managed to achieve this, Orlandi told the Argus that Bridcutt has been 'spot on' in training and isn't 'rocking the boat' at all.

'I think Liam's attitude has been spot on because he has been training and he hasn't said anything to us.

'We know the situation. He probably wants to leave, he wants to play in the Premier League so fair enough.

'He wants to work with Gus again. He was successful with him but it is a situation the club needs to sort out as soon as possible and then, if he eventually stays, he will give 100 per cent as he always does.'

Oscar left him out of the squad that lost to Derby because his mind 'wasn't right' and I think that, as good as he is, that has to be the right call. Bridcutt might be training properly and not causing problems but if his mind isn't in the right place it's right to leave him out.

The transfer window closing will make a difference to this, if he hasn't moved on to the Stadium of Light by then.
