Paul Barber believes no idea is a bad idea in the quest to save the season.

But Albion’s chief executive does not appear keen on copying a plan which will hand one of the club's players a league winner’s medal.

Premier League action is on hold until well into next month, at least, as the nation battles against coronavirus.

The Belgians have opted to call it a season and use current league standings to decide key issues.

That means Club Brugge, where Albion forward Percy Tau is on loan, will be champions.

Barber remains open to all ideas but the plan remains to play out the 2019-20 campaign.

He said: “I think in any situation where the norm is taken away, you have to be open-minded to lots of different solution.

“I know in Belgium they have cancelled the league and awarded the title to the team currently on top.

“They have gone out of their comfort zone and made a decision for their pragmatic reasons.

“I don’t think any idea is a bad idea in a difficult situation.

“But the integrity of the league is, for me, very important in a competition as valuable and as important as the Premier League or, for that matter, the Championship or League One or League Two.

“There are lots of clubs who have worked so hard up to this point in the season.

“We all would love to finish it but we are realistic as well about what is going on.”

Tau will emulate current Albion player Leandro Trossard in winning the Belgian title.

Trossard starred as Genk took the crown last season.

Tau has started 12 league games and scored three goals for Club Brugge, who are 15 points clear.
