West Ham United and Brighton and Hove Albion have joined the race for West Bromwich Albion forward Rayhaan Tulloch, according to the Scottish Sun.
The young striker has been in fine form for the Baggies’ under-23 side, scoring nine goals in 14 appearances in the Premier League 2 campaign.
The 19-year-old is highly regarded at the Hawthorns and has made three first-team appearances in the FA Cup this season, featuring against Newcastle, Charlton and getting 30 minutes of football against West Ham.

Now, it is West Ham and Brighton who have reportedly joined Rangers in the race to sign Tulloch, whose future in the West Midlands is up in the air.
With the striker’s deal at the Hawthorns set to expire next month, time is running out for West Brom to tie Tulloch down to fresh terms amid high-profile interest elsewhere.
Football Insider have recently claimed that West Brom are confident of tying their youngster down to a new deal, but it remains to be seen whether fresh interest will sway the player’s head.
This isn’t the first time West Brom have been involved in one of these sagas, and they need to really start getting players’ futures sorted sooner rather than later.
They nearly lost Rekeem Harper on a free transfer last season and look set to lose Nathan Ferguson upon the expiry of his contract this summer.
Tulloch looks to be a really exciting player who has large potential, but if he is to leave, it would be a big blow for Bilic’s side in terms of the long run.
