If it is deemed that some additional experience is required in his development, then he is likely to be the subject of several offers, with sides from League One and League 2 already in conversation with the Baggies.
It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out because he may have seen more first-team minutes this season if the Baggies were not so well stacked in that position.
However, he now finds himself in a position where an impressive pre-season could throw him straight into Bruce’s plans, with the exciting defender impressing on a consistent basis with the club’s U23s.
If Bruce believes that some more experience is required before he can be integrated into the first team regularly, then it will also be interesting to see what calibre of club is trusted with his immediate development.
Given the fact that League One clubs are monitoring his situation, it will be no surprise if the temporary destination would be in the third tier.
