West Brom announced over the weekend that they have released Liam Ridgewell, Zoltan Gera, Diego Lugano, and Steven Reid.
After narrowly escaping relegation and sacking Pepe Mel, the changes continue at West Brom as veteran players Ridgewell, Lugano, Reid and Gera have all been released. While Lugano, Reid and Gera are all decidedly squad players for the Baggies with 7, 16 and 5 starts respectively in the league Ridgewell led the team with 33 starts and will need to be replaced at left back. Combined with loan players Scott Sinclair, Morgan Amalfitano, Matej Vydra, Thievy Bifouma and Goran Popov leaving the new manager will have a lot of work to do retooling the squad for next season.
