Albion have pledged to protect wages and jobs for as long as they can.

But chief executive Paul Barber has admitted nothing can be ruled out as the club see their income disappear due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Clubs elsewhere in the Premier League have made use of the furlough system to pay off-pitch staff while players’ basic wages remain unaffected.

Albion continue to pay wages on and off the pitch.

But Barber said that situation will be under constant review and employees will be fully informed.

He told BBC 5 Live: “If this crisis continues for some time and we don’t have matches, of course we have got to look at our cost base just like everyone else.

“It’s a very difficult situation when your income disappears overnight but all of your costs remain. We can’t rule anything out.

"We have been very honest with our staff, we have been very straightforward with them.

“We are going to try to support them as long as we possibly can and protect their jobs and wages for as long as we can.

“But we have got to monitor this week by week, month by month.”

Albion have already pledged to pay matchday staff for the rest of the season.

Premier League and EFL clubs are due to discuss a possible collective wage deferral at a meeting with the PFA today.
