West Brom are facing a fight to keep skipper Jonathan Greening at the club as Fulham still want him, according to Roberto Di Matteo.

The Baggies boss left Greening out of the side which beat Peterborough on Tuesday night as negotiations between the two clubs continued and a deal now looks to be close.

"Basically the two clubs are negotiating," Di Matteo told the club's official website. "His team-mates are fighting for a cause. I didn't feel it was right for him to be involved last night.
"He's been a great professional for us. I spoke to him before the game. There has been a lot going on for him in the last five or six weeks but, once again, I have to emphasise he's been very good for us.
"He's been a true professional and it was my decision to pull him out last night."
