“Not exactly the dream start at West Brom that I hoped for, but I’ve still learned a lot throughout it.” Dike wrote on Instagram.
“At the beginning of the year, I set many goals for myself and I still plan to achieve them!”
“The minor setback has given me even more hunger and desire to succeed next season. I am excited for it and I will be ready!”
“And to those who have been patient and supported me along the way, don’t worry I will repay you😉⚽️ #wba.”
Daryl Dike joined West Brom during the January transfer window for a reported fee in excess of £7 million pounds.
The 21-year-old inked a four and a half year deal with the club, however, during his second appearance for the club following his move from the United States, Dike sustained a hamstring injury.

Although there was hope he could play some part towards the end of the campaign, the injury saw him sit out the remainder of the 2021/22 season.
It’s such a shame how things worked out for Daryl Dike after moving to The Hawthorns.
To pick up an injury just after signing for a club is devastating and no doubt has been frustrating for the player.
These things happen though, and players can bounce back – just ask Kieffer Moore at Bournemouth.
Dike will no doubt be gearing up for a big season up top for the Baggies in 2022/23.
